If you're a parent or have been a parent of teenagers, this is one you'll appreciate. Julie and Eric have two, Alexis and Jake; Alexis may or may not be having an affair with hg er (married) English professor. Jake, seemingly within a matter of days, has gone from lovable boy to hormonally ravaged teenager, who speaks in monosyllabic grunts, eats all day and is caught having sex with his girlfriend.

It was an interesting read about a woman, Julie who is struggling with dealing with being in her 40's, her son becoming sexually active, her daughter being involved with an older man and her tenuous relationship with her mother being tested even further as her mother is diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. The writing was involving and the story line was realistic. It was a good read.

This book was ok... not bad, not great. I thought it was going to have more humor in it than it did. While there were spurts of amusement, for the most part it read like I was viewing someone's ordinary, somewhat boring life.

I read this book a couple of summers ago. It was a quick read...great for the beach, or vacation. I found the book to be quite humorous at times (most of the time if I remember correctly). One of these days, in the not so near future, I will pick it up, and read it again.

Fairly standard fair. Semi-interesting characters with semi-interesting dilemmas all tied up semi-neatly at the end. I was looking for an easy read and this fit the bill.

Worst book I've read in a long time. It was slow moving and hardly any plot; I couldn't relate to the drama.
