Is it just me? Am I the only one who’s lonely? Am I the only one without friends?
If you’ve ever asked yourself these questions, Amy Weatherly and Jess Johnston, founders of the widely popular “Sister, I Am with You,” community, are raising their hands to say, “Yeah, us too.” And they want to encourage, equip, and reassure you that you have what it takes to build the kind of friendships you want.
Loneliness doesn’t care what age you are, how many Instagram followers you have, or where you call home. It doesn’t care how “put together” you appear to the outside world. We have a collective wound that only authentic sisterhood can heal.
With real-life vulnerability and “I’ve been there, too” wisdom about building deep and satisfying friendships, Amy and Jess unpack the lies we’ve been told about friendship and show you how to:

Let’s start making friendship a priority–together.
From the Publisher
Mary Katherine Backstrom, national bestselling author of Holy Hot Mess: Finding God in the Details of this Weird and Wonderful Life
“It never fails, when I read the writings of Amy and Jess, I pull out my journal and highlighter. There are treasure troves of wisdom and affirmations peppered throughout each page. I cackled out loud, I nodded my head, and more than once I yelled, ‘Yes, THAT!’ Maybe that’s the most beautiful gift that Amy and Jess possess: their love for humanity rises off the page—when you read, you feel like their friend. Amy and Jess teach about friendships in the most honest and humble way possible: by becoming the friend each of their readers truly longs to have.”
Melanie Shankle, New York Times bestselling author of Nobody’s Cuter than You
