The author reflects on the friends in her life, as well as the nature and value of female friendship.
There is nothing as precious in life as a friend who knows you and loves you in spite of yourself. Yet over the last couple of decades, weâve substituted the joy of real friendship with cheap imitations. We settle for âcommunityâ on Facebook and Twitter and a series of text messages that allow us to communicate with someone without the commitment. We like each otherâs beautifully filtered photos on Instagram and delude ourselves into believing we have a community. But real friendship requires effort. Itâs showing up, laughing loud, and crying hard. Itâs forgiving and loving and giving the benefit of the doubt. Itâs making a casserole, doing a carpool pickup, and making sure she knows those cute shoes are 50 percent off. Written in the same comedic style as the New York Times bestsellers Sparkly Green Earrings and The Antelope in the Living Room, Nobodyâs Cuter than You is a laugh-out-loud look at the special bond that exists between friends and a poignant celebration of all the extraordinary people God had the good sense to bring into our lives at exactly the right moments. From the friendships we develop over a lifetime to the ones that wounded us and the ones that taught us to love better, Melanie Shankle reveals the influence our friends have on who we were, who we are, and who we will become. And on a day when our jeans feel too tight, our chins have decided to embrace hormone-related acne reminiscent of our teen years, and our kids have tested the limits of our sanity, they are the ones who will look at us and say, âNobodyâs cuter than you!â
