I am pretty sure that Karen Gorbackknew my mom; the dialogue was right out of her mouth. She must have also met my daughter. I am sure that everyone will find something ofthemselves in Freshman Mom that will make them smile and might even make them cry. I absolutely loved this book and hated that it ended so soon. I can't wait to see what happens to the Lieberman family next. . . . Icould feel Meredith's pain, joy and can only hope you write a follow-up. I loved this book! I give this book a ten plus ten plus ten rating. Don't pass it up; you won't be sorry.

Freshman Mom gives a realistic look at college life and motherhood. I smiled at Meredith's accomplishments and cried when shewas down. . . . This is a story of strength. Awesome book! Will Meredith's story continue? I was disappointed to see it end. Reviewed By April Gilly for Readers' Favorite
Dr. Gorback weaves a poignant tale about a single mother fulfilling her dreams.
Her style is warm, honestand humorous. The words in this book capture the magic of a uniquegift--a depth of never-ending devotion, and a lifetime of acceptance,support, and love.

One thing I enjoyed about this book was the mantra: You’re never too old to go to school.
“Learning keeps me alive. The books are my blood and the homework my breath.” (LOC 510)
Story chronicles the perils of motherhood and academic challenges. Meredith’s teen daughter was such a hand-full (real drama queen.) Meredith had to juggle it all. I think readers can definitely learn from her journey, however, the read becomes a tad mediocre and bland. The lesson is inspirational, but the read was okay.
I went back to college after my divorce and I could feel her pain, her struggles and her triumphs. The well written novel depicts a real world. Meredith could be the woman next door, toiling away to keep family life, personal life and scholastic achievement in balance. . . . somewhat.
Entertaining and quick to read. A perfect book to read when you're tired of super heroes and fantasy character and are looking for a character you can relate to.
I would recommend the book to college students as well, so they can get a deeper understanding of older students in a class setting.
A good clean read for all to enjoy!
Yes, as Meredith soon found out, cracking textbooks, attending classes, and taking tests, which she had not done for many years, was harder than she ever thought it would be. Continuing to maintain her single mom home, while competing with young classmates for academic achievement, was a daunting task, which she considered terminating several times. How she overcame these obstacles makes for a fast paced novel, which is fun to read.
I highly recommend this fast paced story to everyone who wants to enjoy a good read. Now I wonder who will play the part of Meredith and the other characters in the book.
This story is somewhat of a cliffhanger. Not all questions are answered.
Easy to follow and difficult to put down. No violence or drag-you-down drama.
Realistic storyline. Believable characters with distinct personalities. Thought-provoking and snarky dialogue.
No desire to re-read this story. I may be interested in other works by this author.
