*Look for the Winter issue of Bitch magazine, which will include a review of P.S.!

Read what others have said about P.S.:

“These beautifully written letters carry a remarkable power. Some are bravely, achingly honest. Others are just plain buoyant. This is a book sure to inspire any woman who has ever had a friend.”– Jeffrey Zaslow, author of “The Girls from Ames” and coauthor, “The Last Lecture.”

“Too often, even best friendships end with hurt feelings and unexpressed sentiments. The diverse collection of letters in P.S. What I Didn’t Say give voice to the depth and complexity of female friendships. In so doing, the book helps readers better understand themselves and these relationships.” —Irene S. Levine, PhD, author of Best Friends Forever: Surviving a Breakup With Your Best Friend, Professor of Psychiatry, NYU School of Medicine
