tells the tale of three generations of women all living under the same roof. Joanie is a recently divorced, about to turn fifty , mother of Caroline, a teenager who has dyed her hair a shocking shade of pink and has developed a taste for marijuana and daughter to Ivy, her widowed mother with a non-existant retirement thanks to the recession and a penchant for "Goggling" and shoplifting expensive scarves. Yes. Joanie has a house full of hormonal hell. Just when she was getting used to being divorced her ex announces he's marrying his pregnant girlfriend. Caroline is crazy about the dreamiest hunk in her Spanish class who doesn't seem to know she's alive and her Dad's crazy girlfriend wants to be her friend, for gosh sakes. And Ivy just wishes she understood what all the fuss was about.
Ms. Pennebaker has crafted a uproarious novel about characters who are amazingly recognizable. These women are your sister and mother, aunt and co-worker, your daughter and friend. They are the women everywhere who struggle to find their way after devastating divorce, loss and life. We root for these women because we are these women.
