Given to me by a non-bookcrossing friend.

Charlotte is the youngest, in high school, daughter to Karen, who had her while she was in high school. She is only 33, but at times she "feels 60." She is daughter to Nan, who is somewhat senile, but sweet and loving. They are all living in the same house. You know how three women under one roof can be.

All is normal, except for one thing. Charlotte is more like her mother than she cares to be. She has found herself pregnant and the boyfriend is nowhere in sight. Will she follow in her mum's footsteps and have this baby, or take another road?

Her "friend" Daniel is there for her all of the way. He seems to have ulterior motives, but who wouldn't? He is a sweet Napoleon Dynamite looking type character, but knows a lot about pregnancy and does a lot of research on the internet. (Also on how to please a woman.)

This is a tale of growing up, getting along (or not) with your parents, and how women deal with each other.

I couldn't get into this. Possibly the wrong book at the wrong time.

7 out of 10

I am not sure what I expected - certainly not what I got! None of the three women are bad and the book isn't 'funny'. What it is though is a look at a family and how they interact and deal with what life troughs at them. Bitter sweet would be a food description.
