My Teenage Werewolf: A Mother, a Daughter, a Journey through the Thicket of Adolescence by Lauren Kessler
My Teenage Werewolf: A Mother, a Daughter, a Journey through the Thicket of Adolescence

jessmacblaine, August 5, 2010

When I first picked up this book, I thought to myself: wow, what a bold way to ruin your relationship with your kid. But then I read it. Not only did I totally fall in love with Lizzie and Lauren, who are both smart, human, flawed, loving, brave people, but I learned some very basic (and surprisingly difficult) things about being a better person, a better family member: Be brave, be honest, respect each other, look your flaws and questions in the face. That's big stuff, and not limited to mother-daughter relationships. AND, never once did it feel cloying or preachy. This book is wise and funny and impressive, both in its skillful execution and its emotional depth. Brava!
