Who returns your calls faster than a speeding bullet? Who will leap to your side in a single bound? Your mother…your dog…your hairdresser? No! It’s your girlfriend! Artist Monica Sheehan knows this and created Girlfriends: From Campfires To Crow’s Feet as the perfect tribute to the women in every female’s life. Through this collection of pithy anecdotes and too-funny illustrations, Sheehan reminds women young and old that: Girlfriend’s share their M&M’s, magazine’s and Xanax; Girlfriends know the best things in life are “flea.”; Girlfriends lie to your mother for you.

This was such a fun read! I bought this book to share with those friends in my life that fall into this category. These are the friends I can call up at 2 am to cry if I need to, stay up at all night eating junk food and watching chick flicks, they go on ridiculously long bike rides with me, go to haunted hay rides, dress up in formal wear and go to mansions for sleep overs….. and – AND when I say I want to go to New York in May to go to the book expo but hate driving in the cities to get to the airport….. they look at me without skipping a beat and say, “we’ll drive you.”
This book reminded me of those friendships and is one I hope to share around a campfire this year and read out loud as we laugh and remember those times – all the while creating new memories.
I highly recommend this read to share with the girlfriend (s) in your life!
