Reviewing a friends book.

Nope, not going to do it. A girl that I grew up with wrote a collection of poetry. She wants me to read and review it. I don't like that idea. If I don't like it, ruined friendship. If I do like it, no one trusts the review anyways. I referred her to a different friend of mine who she doesn't know. I think I hurt her feelings. I offered to give her the books she sent me back, or to pass them on to the other friend, but she declined the offer. Am I wrong for not wanting to open that particular can of worms?


I told I wasn't even comfortable with just rating the book.
