Young adults will probably not be able to project its full implications decades ahead into their own lives. What we can hope is that in this book women will find a healing perspective, and that all parents and teachers will find a renewed strength in guiding their daughters away from accepting bullying as a rite of passage. Myla Goldberg does a creditable job of narration, although, as with most authors with the notable exception of Sue Miller , Ms.
Goldberg's pitch and tone are not ideal for a narrator. Given that her book delves into a pre-adolescent past, her chirpiness is not entirely misplaced. Though in the future I'd prefer to hear someone else narrate her work, in this instance her narration does not detract from the novel's impact. Narrator was bland.
Her voice was monotone. The story started slow and never picked up pace and ended up being very boring. This is a nice book with an interesting story. It was an easy read and I enjoyed it.

What I hated was the reader. Imagine my surprise when I realized that the reader was the author. Bad idea! Her voice is like a squeaky teenager.
When she moves into other characters, she gets even higher and squeakier. So, not a bad book, just a bad reader. Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? Liked the way it was written, but didn't think the ending quite delivered. Then, as trust develops, you might share more intimate info, like details about a medical condition you have. In addition to protecting your self-interests, gradual disclosures are actually the healthiest way to form new relationships. It's uncommon to know someone's deepest, darkest secrets within the first week of knowing them. Become a better judge of character.
Pay more attention to their sincerity, true interest in you, and their ability to put the friendship above their own personal needs.
Your audiobook is waiting…
Yes No. Not Helpful 1 Helpful You can pay more attention. Does the other person show a sincere interest in you? Is conversation shared back and forth? Are they there for you when you are upset or in need? A fake friend like to hang out but wants all the attention on them, their interests, and their needs. When you need something or want to go somewhere, they aren't usually willing to put themselves out. Not Helpful 3 Helpful How can you avoid talking to a fake friend if you see them all the time and work with them?
You can't avoid talking altogether if you work together, but you can limit the conversation to work-related topics. You don't have to "take the bait" if they ask about very personal things. You also don't have to encourage their over-focus on themselves; limit your own follow-up questions. Not Helpful 5 Helpful You cannot control others. It will be up to your true friend to figure out if your false friend is also her false friend or not. Try to limit the amount of time you spend with the two of them together.
Not Helpful 8 Helpful My only friend hurts me a lot, physically and mentally. He lowers my self-esteem and calls me horrible names, I often cry after being with him.

Am I just overreacting? He is not a friend to you. A true friend is encouraging and supportive, not hurtful. Distance yourself from this person and find new friends. See the wikiHow article, How to Make Friends for some pointers. Not Helpful 2 Helpful How do I prevent myself from seeming like a false friend? I love all my friends dearly and I would never wish for them to believe I'm faking it! You just have to be real and kind. Remember to create time for each of them and never leave anyone out.
Communicate properly. Talk things out, especially when one of you has been hurt. You'll find that being sincere but kind is the easiest way to show your friends you love them. What if my friend is not so kind, just neutral? She does not really have the qualities of a true friend, and at the same time isn't rude. Should I forget about her? This is up to you. She could just be an acquaintance.
It is fine to hang around with people who are just friendly but not really friends with you. Not Helpful 0 Helpful My friend acts fun and normal when she's around me, but around more popular people she just ignores me or frowns at me. What do I do? You might have a false friend. Real friends act the same whether they are with you alone, or with a crowd of other people.
Likely, she wants to fit in with the popular crowd and thinks you are hurting her chances. Try talking to her about how her actions make you feel, as she may not realize how her actions affect you. Not Helpful 7 Helpful How do you overcome the sadness that comes with false friends, or people that use you for their own gain? Ignore them and move on. Remember, it is not your fault that they are selfish or false, and you should be happy to realize it now. Find and confide in your close friends, who will be there for you when you feel upset or down.
