Three generations of women deal with living under one roof - Nan, Karen, and Charlotte narrate the battles and issues they find themselves in daily. Its a funny mixture of love, divorce, ex-husbands, ex boyfriends, school grades, homework, changing plastic digestive bags, unwanted pregnancies, birth parents, hate, love, and the constant tide and flow of hormones, among others.
Kate Long writes this one with raw honesty and Brit styled humor, but I wouldn't say that chick lit is really everyone's cup of tea, some can find it really too whiny and pointless (read: bimbo), but this debut has gottened enough rave reviews and sales for her to quit teaching.
Its an easy read, none too mind boggling. The wittily written narrations might give you mental LoL!s at times, but is also capable of forcing the occassional hydrating element from either one of your lacrimal sacs and thus obscuring your vision and consequently forestall your reading pleasure hehe pls excuse the caffeine talking ;D but ya. anyway.
