Book Review: Text Me When You Get Home by Kayleen Schaefer

Text Me When You Get Home: The Evolution and Triumph of Modern Female Friendship


A personal and sociological examination--and ultimately a celebration--of the evolution of female friendship in pop culture and modern society
For too long, women have been told that we are terrible at being friends, that we can't help being cruel or competitive, or that we inevitably abandon each other for romantic partners. But we are rejecting those stereotypes and reclaiming the power of female friendship.
In Text Me When You Get Home, journalist Kayleen Schaefer interviews more than one hundred women about their BFFs, soulmates, girl gangs, and queens while tracing this cultural shift through the lens of pop culture. Our love for each other is reflected in Abbi and Ilana, Issa and Molly, #squadgoals, the acclaim of Girls Trip and Big Little Lies, and Galentine's Day.
Schaefer also includes her own history of grappling with a world that told her to rely on men before she realized that her true source of support came from a strong tribe of women. Her personal narrative and celebration of her own relationships weaves throughout the evolution of female friendship on-screen, a serious look at how women have come to value one another and our relationships.
Text Me When You Get Home is a validation that has never existed before. A thoughtful, heart-soaring, deeply reported look at how women are taking a stand for their friendships and not letting go. 
Writing
I had no issues with the writing, but I also wasn't highly impressed by it. For the most part it was an engaging and easy read, but I didn't always enjoy the author's voice or identify with her perspective. A lot of this book focuses on pop culture, which was less interesting to me than the less elaborated personal stories and sociological information presented on the value of female friendships.

Entertainment Value
I had very high hopes for this book and to be honest it did let me down a bit. I wanted this to be an examination of women's friendships in real life and this focused more on pop culture and the author's own experiences, which were very different than my own. I grew up in a home where my mother had many female friends and where I was taught the value of female friendships. A lot of what the author had to say about prioritizing relationships with men over women was just not what I've experienced in life. It made it hard for me to connect with the author and her point of view.

Overall
While this is a good book on female friendship, particularly as it's displayed in movies and on television, it wasn't the book I was hoping for. It took me quite a while to read it, as I didn't find it particularly compelling. It was, however, an easy read, and one I'd be likely to recommend to someone looking for an examination of female friendships in relation to pop culture.

  12. I want to give a testimony on how I got cured from Herpes Virus. Few months back I was having some symptoms . I went to see a doctor and many blood tests was done on me, later on I was told I had Herpes. My doctor told me that there’s no cure for Herpes I felt bad, I went online searching for a possible cure for Herpes Virus, I saw a post of Dr. Ojamo a herbal doctor that’s helping people get cured from Herpes. I contacted him and told him how I’m feeling he said his herbal medicine can cure me. He sent me the medicine via UPS delivery service and I received the medicine in 8 days after he sent it, i took the medicine as prescribed by him. Before i completed the medication the symptoms stopped. I went to the doctor and carried out another blood test, surprisingly I was Negative. I haven’t had any symptoms anymore.

  16. Thanks to Doctor Williams for the Great miraculous work he did in my life with his herbal remedy. I too have been living with this virus and I have shared with my partners my situation because they deserve to have a choice of whether they want to change being with me or not. I, unfortunately, did not have a choice in this matter leaving me vulnerable and now faced with this virus for the rest of my life or until a cure was discovered. I refused to take the Medical drugs my PCD have told me to take, I surrendered to my fate because I was careless. Late on at night, Feb 13, 2016, I came across Doctor Williams herbal medicine. I browsed about the authenticity of This Doctor, I got to see several Testimonies regarding his works from people he had helped with his medicine. i reached out to him and told him my problems, after we spoke he promised to help me out. I started using his herbal medicine which he sent to me Via the Courier Delivery and asked me to take the herbal medicine for 18 days. which i did. I am delighted to let you all know that I Got cured of Herpes Virus after the Medical Doctor had confirmed this with the test results when I went for a medical check-up after completing the Herbal Dosage Of 18 days.

  25. I was diagnosed with ALS/MND last year in May 2019. our doctor put me on riluzole, letting me know there was no cure but the medication might provide me a few more months of delayed symptoms. ALS progresses at different rates and affects different body parts first. me being 60 at this time, fell into a category of what they call “fast progression” (older female). My arms weakened first, then my hands, my mouth, and throat, and finally my lungs. Throughout my two-and-a-half-year  ordeal, I  was able to walk with assistance until I was told to use Dr Amend herbal formula which helped me get rid of this ALS/MND totally after using it for just 12 weeks treatment plan. The total cure of Dr Amend herbal remediation brought me back to life again and terminate all the symptoms. I have a great herbal doctor, unique and honest....contact Dr Amend right now if you have same problem, WhatsApp him now via +2348115685795

  27. The Chinese words feng and shui mean imply "wind" and "water," separately. This thought got from an obsolete poem that conversations about human life being related and spilling with the atmosphere around it. The perspective of feng shui is a demonstration of getting sorted out the pieces in living spaces to make counterbalance with the normal world. The goal is to harness energy powers and set up congruity between an individual and their present situation.
