My Mother the Cheerleader
By Robert Sharenow

This book is fantastic. One of my all-time favorite books is The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd and I couldn’t help but find similarities in this book. I especially loves the themes of belonging, love, family, forgiveness, and honesty. Louise’s relationship with her mother is heartbreaking and beautiful. My favortie part of the book was when she took her daughter’s hand as they walked away from the school. So good. This book has wonderful messages without ever being pushy. When is the movie coming out?

Violence: Lots and lots

Sex: Yes, including a rape scene

Drugs/Alcohol: Lots

Language: Lots. Very cruel
