Another cute one from Claire Cook, author of Must Love Dogs. This was a fun read about a woman who's trying to have it all without really knowing what she wants. She's a life coach whose own life is less than perfect. Quick read!
Loved this story, perfect for empty nesters, I myself identified with the story. I'm a 40ish college student and my daughter is also starting college. This book speaks to finding new direction after your chicks fly away.
Great read! Anyone that has dealt with young adult daughters can identify with it. You're just never cool enough for them, until they need something. Written with humor and insight!
I found the mother weak and the teen too angsty for my taste. Maybe this is because I spend all day with teens as a high school senior English teacher, but the development of both main characters was trite and stereotypical. Instead of focusing on the nuances that make people unique, both characters seems cut out of a mold.
Terrific. If you read the book Must Love Dogs, or saw and loved the movie, then you will love this look into the life of a mother who, at the same time as her daughter, goes to college...and the hilarity and indignities that result.
"an efferervescent novel of family life that will strike a chord with women everywhere." About a mom & daughter in college at the same time, to the daughter's immense displeasure!
I liked it better than "Must Love Dogs." Made me want to call my mom and apologize for ever being 20 years old.
This is a fun, light read. I have a teenage daughter and I could relate, but even if you don't it's an enjoyable read.
Another fun book by Cook. Easy read about a mother/daughter relationship.
Kinda disappointing. Very short so nothing really gets going enough. The relationship with her daughter is typical mother/daughter. There was a situation where the daughter disobeys and goes out against the mother's wishes. Mother was angry and then the situation seems to get brushed under the rug. Also, the mom is a life coach and has a really annoying client, so annoying I had a hard time reading those parts. Again, not much done there either. I guess it's a good fast read but that's really about it. Meh.
From the author of Must Love Dogs. I have to say I enjoyed Must Love Dogs more but this is still a lite funny read.
This a fun book to read, specially for parent's (mother's) of teen or college age kids. Nothing very deep but still thought provoking and interesting.
I read this book in one evening. A very cute and quick read. All about the mother/daughter struggle. It made me realize what I put my mother through when I was a teen....:-)
Ho hum. Mom goes back to school, ends up interning at same place as difficult freshman daughter. Quick read, but nothing memorable. Read it and re-trade it.
Cute story. Very easy read; you don't have to think too much.
SUCH an easy read, she is a pleasure! If you liked "Must Love Dogs" you'll probably like this one too!!
The first out of the nest is off to college and March Monroe thinks its time that she finishes what she started before the kids. A radio station internship sounds like an interesting pursuit and who should be her fellow intern? Daughter Olivia with all her teenage angst.
