From the co-author of the bestselling "The Last Lecture" comes a moving tribute to female friendships, with the inspiring story of 11 girls and the women they became.

Jeffrey Zaslow was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on October 6, 1958. After graduating from Carnegie Mellon in 1980, he worked for The Orlando Sentinel's Sunday magazine until 1983 and then joined The Wall Street Journal as a feature writer. In 1987, he entered a contest held by The Chicago Sun-Times to fill the job left vacant when its advice columnist, Ann Landers, left to work for The Chicago Tribune. He won the contest and wrote the advice column All That Zazz until 2001. His first book, Tell Me All about It, was based on his years as an advice columnist. In 2001, he returned to The Wall Street Journal as a columnist and wrote a regular column called Moving On. His other books include The Last Lecture written with Randy Pausch, Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope written with Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly, Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters written with Chesley B. Sullenberger, The Girls from Ames: A Story of Women and a Forty-Year Friendship, and The Magic Room: A Story About the Love We Wish for Our Daughters. He died in a car accident on February 10, 2012 at the age of 53.
