Stretch Marks - A Book That Will Stretch You . . .

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

Book Description: Mia is a granola-eating, sensible shoe–wearing, carbon footprint–conscious twenty-something living in a multicultural neighborhood in Chicago. Her mother, Babs, is a stiletto-wearing Zsa Zsa Gabor type who works as an activities hostess on a Caribbean cruise line … and if you guessed there’s some tension there, you’d be right. Factor in an unexpected pregnancy and Mia’s idealistic boyfriend—Lars is such a visionary he doesn’t believe in the institution of marriage—and the mother-daughter relationship is, well, stretched very thin. As is Mia’s sanity when Babs shows up to … help.
Actually, Mia has a whole neighborhood of quirky characters who want to help, including her BFF Frankie, a magenta-haired librarian; Silas, the courtly gentleman of indeterminate age who lives downstairs; and Adam, proprietor of the corner grocery store where Mia shops. But it’s Adam—endearing, kind, possessed of a perfect smile and impeccable Persian manners—who ultimately charms Babs and rescues Mia from more than one mother-induced meltdown. Could it be that Mia and Babs might actually be able to get along?

My Thoughts: This book is fab and so for today! Due to so many single mothers we have these kinds of situations and Kimberly Stuart writes it realistically and with so much fun. I know for a lot of Christians this would be considered "Controversial" and "Taboo" please don't let the subject matter hinder you from reading this one. It is a complete delight! I guarantee that mothers who have daughters will be able to identify with Babs in some way, and daughters will be able to identify with Mia. I give this book a lighthouse and shine a light on it for pointing a path to God.
