Frenemies is an upbeat and fun new chick lit series for girls (and boys) aged 11+. Written like a Kathy Lette novel for tweens, this novel deals with the real life experiences of when girls growing up and puberty changes more than body shape. Young writes about the dynamics of teen friendship and isn't afraid to show how the girls can exploit each other's weaknesses. More than just about a juvenile joust, Frenemies, deals with popular culture, the media, fashion, family and romance

Review: A must read for every teen. Friends are an important part of our life, but be prepared for the Frenemy, they are hard to pick but this will help you choose your friends and guard yourself against the ultimate betrayal.
