A positive, practical and innovative approach to friendship guides for girls - the first step to building brilliant friendships is to know who YOU are.
Getting friendships right isn't easy. It's hard to find great friends, and even harder to hold on to them when rumours swirl or dramas unfold. But don't worry; psychologist and friendship expert Dr Angharad Rudkin and fabulous children's author Ruth Fitzgerald are here to show you how to find - and keep - a girl squad that's as unique and special as you.
Ruth Fitzgerald grew up in South Wales but has lived most of her life in Suffolk. She wrote her first story at the age of six and immediately announced she wanted to be a writer. Her teacher told her that being a writer was a hobby and she needed to get a proper job. Ruth tried 23 proper jobs before deciding her teacher was wrong.
She lives near Ipswich with her family, a tiny dog and five chickens.
