Droll humor - this was a much better book than I thought, well-written.
This is a fast-reading little book detailing a short period in the life of a 40-ish woman, unhappily married and parenting a sullen teen, during which she finds herself unexpectedly pregnant. Quirky characters are sparely but aptly-drawn, and the ending leaves the reader with a lot to ponder.
It is funny and entertaining. This is a quick easy read. Enjoyable for a day on a beach blanket or relaxing by the fire. The flawed heroine is easy to sympathize with.
"A real winner. What a voice: laugh-aloud hilarious, full of naked truth." Amy Tan
Funny, entertaining, and quick
I loved this book. Funny and moving and honest and thoroughly enjoyable. Turned out to be a quick read because I couldn't put it down. There was a paragraph about parenting books that was priceless. Looking forward to reading another book by Mary Guterson.
