Summary
A modern girl is nothing without her squad of besties, but Maggs takes readers on a tour of some of history's most famous female BFFs. You'll meet lady pirates, socialites, Olympic skiers and medical students who showed just how essential female friendship has been throughout history-- and throughout the world. -- adapted from jacket
