Sara James and Ginger Mauney met when they were in middle school. Shared confidences during a slumber party cemented their friendship. Despite moving far apart (Mauney settled in Namibia; James in New York), they remained close. This is a shared memoir of their friendship.

We learn of their various steps and missteps in becoming independent, strong women. The career they chose. The men they fell for (and got hurt by). And finally, their personal and professional successes. Good for them. I was bored.… (mais)
