The 31 quizzes in The Quiz Book for BFFs will have girlfriends talking and laughing. While some of the quizzes can be completed alone (Are You a Loyal Friend?), several are to be worked on together (How Well Do You Know Your BFF?). The questions cover a variety of topics including school, gossip, hobbies, goals and classmates. While many of the questions can be answered with a yes/no, or a letter (a-d), one quiz incorporates drawing and another physical activity. Best friends who need challenging questions can find them in "Do You and Your BFF Really Think Alike?", and "Would You Rather?". Geared towards girls under twelve (there are few questions pertaining to dating or boyfriends), The Quiz Book for BFFs will work best with girls who have a female best friend. The black and white illustrations are decorative in nature, but they include girls from various ethnic groups. References to Justin Bieber and Harry Potter may quickly date the book, but the combination of silly and serious questions would make this an entertaining book to bring along for a sleepover.
