But, the thing is all the girls do it. All of Lizzie's friends send her Secret Crush and Best Friend Quiz e-mails. It's totally okay with her and - I think - increases the bond between her and her friends. I think kids use e-mail much like they use texting - as an informal way to shout out to one another. E-mail is just another cog in the social wheel, but Lizzie's one little friend just isn't getting it and, unfortunately, I think it's hurt her friendship with Lizzie.
And today, another good friend called Lizzie early this morning to tell her she can't go to the dance with her because she's going with a boy. Nice way to just dump your friend. If girls do this to each other at eleven, then it's small wonder thirty-year-old women treat each other like dirt.
