Every mother should read this book, regardless of having sons or daughters. I was in the mood for a novel, not theory, when I picked up this book so the quote at the beginning from Gilbert and Gubar put me off a bit. But Monk's voice pulled me in and I couldn't put it down. I read the first 100 pages in one sitting - rare for me. This book is about life, not theory. It is not preachy either, just sharing.
