My husband is also an avid reader, so I limit my Kindle reading to books he is not likely to want to read, as I cannot think of giving up my Kindle long enough for him to read our favorite authors, whose books we most often buy from Amazon.
I loved this book! Reading about Bab reminds me of the "sub-deb" years of my own life, with the intense passing fancies, emotional roller-coasters, longings for true romance, moonlight and roses, and feelings of being totally misunderstood...particularly by my family. Bab, however, is somewhat more daring than I ever was...creating for herself the hilarious situations she finds herself in.
I, too, recommend this book for moms of teenage girls. We need to re-visit those years our daughters are now living, so that we don't just look at them from older, eyes and give them more reason to feel isolated and alone. Remembering might also save us some heartache and worry as we recall our own passage through those tempestuous years, and hope that they shall emerge from them intact and wiser.
