For the 20-Something: Everything I Know About Love
What better book to give your BFF than one about tumultuous youth and a life well lived through friendship? In her memoir Everything I Know About Love (out Feb. 25), Londoner Dolly Alderton recounts dating through her late teens and twenties, describing situations as distinct as her nice-yet-boring college boyfriend to a wildly brief, passionate New York love affair that had a definite expiration date. This book will have your friend crying of laughter through fictional emails Alderton writes from women planning their bachelorette parties (what's $1000 more to spare anyway?). Apart from dating and love, topics ranging from college, to the workforce, to recipes, to new apartments and roommates — all the way to more complex situations such as as the death of a friend — are all examined through the lens of the absolute beauty of female friendship.
