Real Friends Reviews

  • Heidi

    One of the scary things about becoming the mother of a little girl is knowing/fearing that she is likely going to experience some mean friends in her future. I think all of us have. Even the girl who I consider my best childhood friend to this day was incredibly cruel to me at times. I know I was cruel to others, and am ashamed of it. As Shannon says, when we are young our worlds are small, and it's so hard to see outside of your surroundings. If you feel like you don't fit in or haven't found ' ...more

  • Kelli

    I got this graphic memoir from the library for my 5th grader. I can't believe I have a 5th grader. She has the kindest heart, she is much smarter, funnier, and more athletic than I ever recall being (ever) but guess what? I still hear reports about girls calling her weird, about girls forming groups, about the timeless, treacherous terrain of elementary school friendship. Children today are educated about bullying and my girl puts up with nothing, but at the end of the day, we all just want to f ...more

  • Emma

    A middle grade (or younger) graphic novel that focuses on friendships, aka mean girls, bullying, and cliques. Not a new concept, obviously. However, this one seemed more genuine than formulaic, which I appreciated. I didn't realize that this is probably because it is a memoir until I finished it and read the author's note (maybe I should have figured it out earlier since the main character's name is Shannon?). What I thought seemed genuine was the author's inclusion of her OCD and her family dyn ...more

    "Friendship in younger years can be especially hard because our worlds are small. If you haven't found your 'group' yet, hang in there. Your world will keep growing larger and wider. You deserve to have real friends, the kind who treat you well and get how amazing you are."

    I didn't realize this was a memoir about Hale's elementary school years! That made it all the more awesome. I hate cliques, so I could relate to Shannon's loneliness when her best friend joins "the group." I sometimes wish I c

    I wish I had had this book in 4th-6th grade. It would have been good to know I wasn't the only one who felt awkward.

  • First Second Books

    Following little Shannon's life from kindergarten through fifth grade, Real Friends captures the emotional roller coaster ride of friendship, from navigating the tricky waters of cliques and bullies to her never-ending struggle to stay in "The Group." Shannon’s honest and heartfelt story reminds us of how hard it was to learn what real friends are—and why finding them is worth the journey.

    i really liked the plot & illustrations in this book. i think it moved at a nice pace and it was a fun, easy read.

  • Heidi The Hippie Reader

    Perfect for a 10-year-old, Real Friends looks at the complex relationships among elementary school girls. It teaches readers that good friends don't treat you badly.

    It also delves into the thorny issues of sibling abuse and rivalry, bullying and crushes.

    I liked Real Friends not only for its story, but also for the way that it allowed me to connect with my child. We read the book together and shared our thoughts on friendships.

    The author, Shannon Hale, based this book on her real life experiences
