It's aimed at 9+ years in content, being written in that cool-clothes-and-cupcakes style that you find in magazines for tweenies and early teens, and it is decorated in lots of funky pastels, but beneath all that, it actually contains a lot of common sense. And how female friendships work is applicable whether you are seven or seventeen (or seventy.) I found it immensely useful, because the author has tried to anticipate every single friendship problem that could ever possibly occur in a young girl's life (cliques, rivalries, being left out and lonely, fall-outs, being friends with boys etc. etc.), and then has written it all out in friendly little bite-sized chunks that are very easy for a child to read and absorb.
My daughter discovered that she is not the only girl in the world to be having these experiences, that the author was backing up everything that I had been saying, and that friendship is a skill that can be learnt and practiced same as anything else. And a skill to develop for life. There's also advice to the child on building up their self-esteem and confidence, and pursuing their passions and interests, so they are much more appealing to potential friends, and can survive if there are no friends around at any particular time.
There are some contact numbers and websites at the end for more serious problems like bullying. They are all British contacts.
