Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Pile[s] plenty of laughs and a few tears into the latest volume in their humor series….This breezy, thoughtful book offers funny and lovely family moments that mothers and daughters will savor.” Publishers Weekly
“Humorous, insightful, and touching vignettes…Readers of the previous installments will not be disappointed with the pair’s wit and quirkiness…It leaps over generational gaps, and ultimately mothers and daughters will nod in recognition of feminist values, the oddities of life, and the bonds of family.” Library Journal
“A poignant collection. The coauthors…know women and aren’t afraid to laugh at themselves. Their keen observations and fresh twist on life’s challenges make this the perfect book to pass from mother to daughter.” Booklist
“The down-to-earth, relatable pair are a lot of fun to listen to as their topics range from family dynamics to surviving the contemporary dating world. Scottoline’s Philly accent and expressive speaking style add to the humor of the stories. Serritella also sounds approachable as a young woman who is trying to navigate life, friendship, and love in the city. The stories—by and large light, easy, and fun—are perfect for a relaxed summer day. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
