Publisher's Summary

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, we've substituted the joy of real friendship with cheap imitations. We settle for "community" on Facebook and Twitter and a series of text messages that allow us to communicate with someone without the commitment. We like each other's beautifully filtered photos on Instagram and delude ourselves into believing we have a community. But real friendship requires effort. It's showing up, laughing loud, and crying hard. It's forgiving and loving and giving the benefit of the doubt. It's 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 best sellers Sparkly Green Earrings and The Antelope in the Living Room, Nobody's 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, "Nobody's cuter than you!"

Friendship!

I love listening to Melanie read her own book. This book made me want to call all my girlfriends and tell them how much more I love them after hearing this book...and it also made me want to call friends from the past and thank them for what they meant to me “then.”

Melanie's work is fabulous!

If you are female, have a best friend and have lived thru the 90s this book is for you. Really if your a female you will enjoy her so much. She makes you laugh , cry and want to ride shotgun with her and her best friend Gully. You won't be disappointed.

Sweet Memoir about the Value of True Friendship

Any additional comments?

Melanie tells her story by reading it herself. It brought out several emotions in me, beginning with the importance of friends in early childhood. The author was able to provide great depth of her relationships with others her age throughout the years, and the way in which the friendships enriched her life. She shared her feelings and experiences with refreshing honesty. I cried often throughout the book, so keep some tissues handy. And by all means, don't try to listen to it while shopping in public or on your way to work unless you have fresh makeup to reapply. A nice read that I enjoyed very much.
