Read in January, 2012

This book was written by a dear friend of mine so I was anxious to read it as I followed her through the process. It touches so many bases of our culture and can really generate some deep discussion around how society shapes and defines life stages. The other part of the book that is fascinating is the historical context related to views of different stages of life and how we have arrived at what we generally define as middle age. I really recommend this for any adult who participates in a book where their is an interest in books about social issues, politics, gender issues, cultural issues, pop/contemporary culture, womens/mothers, issues! It really will be appealing to many interests.
