From the Back Cover

For the first time, a self-help guide for women recovering from a break-up with their best friend—an indispensable addition to every woman’s library
Men, jobs, children, personal crises, irreconcilable social gaps—these are just a few of the strange and confusing reasons that may cause a female friendship to end. No matter what the circumstances, the breakup of a female friendship leaves a woman devastated and asking herself difficult questions. Was someone to blame? Is the friendship worth fighting for? How can I prevent this from ever happening again?
Psychologist Irene S. Levine, Ph.D., offers this groundbreaking and heroically honest book for abandoned friends seeking solace. Perfect for women of all ages and from all walks of life, Best Friends Forever covers:
* Why friendships fall apart
* Coping with getting dumped
* How to end a friendship that can’t be fixed
* Moving forward after a traumatizing breakup

Dr. Levine draws from years of research and the personal testimonials of thousands of women to provide anecdotes and solutions to these complicated situations. Full of tools for personal assessment, case stories, and actionable advice for saving, ending, or re-evaluating a relationship, Best Friends Forever is an indispensable addition to every woman’s library.
"For anyone who has ever had a friend, but especially for those who’ve ended close relationships, Irene Levine has written a beautiful guide to recovery and healing. It’s a book filled with honest reflections and heartfelt advice." --Jeffrey Zaslow, New York Times bestselling author of The Girls from Ames and co-author of The Last Lecture
"Finally, a book that helps you get through the other type of breakup." --Andrea Lavinthal and Jessica Rozler, authors of Friend or Frenemy?
