30 Days is a fun, interactive guide for girls jam-packed with friendship tips and step-by-step instruction in the basics of meeting new friends and keeping the old, even through sticky situations and fights.
My thoughts: I must admit, I'm not a big interactive/nonfiction book fan. I found this book to be a little preachy and obvious sometimes in content and felt that sometimes the author was trying too hard to sound "hip". However, all the different activities were very fun, and even though I didn't do any of them, I'd say that 30 Days would provide a lot of entertainment on a rainy day! My favorite part was all the little boxes that listed things like "famous frenemies", and of course, "song of the day", which I really liked.
The interior was so cute and pretty in pink and black, which gave it a girly touch and makes it more personal and cute.
A field guide appropriate for girls and women young and old, 30 Days is a great gift for your BFF!
