Description
(A New York Times Book Review Editor's Choice) The best friend who broke up with you, the older girl at school you worshipped, the friend who betrayed you—and the friend you betrayed—are among the crucial relationships between girls and women that Susanna Sonnenberg explores here. Also the author of the memoir Her Last Death, Sonnenberg presents a score of linked essays, searing and lyrically written, that illuminate the friendships that have influenced, nourished, inspired, and haunted her, and sometimes have even torn her apart. We meet women who have been her companions in travel, in discovery, in motherhood, and in grief, and those who have served such archetypes as the mentor, the model, the rescuer, the guide, and the little sister.

"I read She Matters with such a keen sense of recognition, seeing myself (and my own mistakes and victories) repeated in so many forms through the female friendships of her own that Sonnenberg examines so eloquently.... Like all of us, I want to do better. I think (hope) this book can help."—Elizabeth Gilbert

"Sonnenberg is a gifted literary stylist with a stunning ability to write sentences that read like beautiful traps.... She Matters artfully reveals the depth and gravity of love between women as they make sense of the changing and often treacherous emotional and logistical terrain of their forward-moving lives."—Boston Globe
