Reviews
"The stories in this book come from many perspectives -- those of therapists, educators, and parents. The wise, kind authors give us a fresh cogent analysis of this critically important issue. I recommend BEST FRIENDS, WORST ENEMIES to all those who work with and love kids."

-- Mary Pipher, Ph.D., author of REVIVING OPHELIA
