**If you're planning to come to the book club, it might be wise to locate a copy of the book asap as you may have to order it online http://www.amazon.co.uk/Queen-Bees-And-Wannabes-boyfriends/dp/0749924373/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1357579717&sr=8-1 **
As a follow up to Bossypants, we'ved decided to read the book which was the basis for Tina Fey's Mean Girls. You can watch the trailer below.
Here's some info about the book:
"When Rosalind Wiseman first published Queen Bees & Wannabes, she fundamentally changed the way adults look at girls’ friendships and conflicts–from how they choose their best friends, how they express their anger, their boundaries with boys, and their relationships with parents. Wiseman showed how girls of every background are profoundly influenced by their interactions with one another."
Book club questions, (how convenient!):
To facilitate discussion, we'll have these ground rules:
-Everyone has the right to contribute to the discussion
-Refrain from personal attacks, criticise the idea and not the person
-Everyone is welcome to attend regardless of age, gender, race, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious belief, disability, membership of the travelling community, marital status or family status.
Happy reading & hope to see you next month!
