Description

Love and guilt are thick in the Scottoline/Serritella household, and Lisa and Francesca's mother-daughter-turned-best-friends bond will strike a familiar note to many. But now that Lisa is a suburban empty nester and Francesca is an independent twentysomething in the big city, they have to learn how to stay close while living apart. How does a mother's love translate across state lines and over any semblance of personal boundaries? You'll laugh out loud as they face off over the proper technique for packing dishes, the importance of bringing a coat in the summertime, and the dos and don'ts of dating at any age. Add feisty octogenarian Mother Mary to the mix, and you have a Molotov cocktail of estrogen, opinions, and fun.

These stories will make you laugh, cry, and call your mother, daughter, and all your girlfriends.

Publishers Weekly Review

Oct 08, 2012 – The witty and warm mother-daughter team are back with their third collection of “Chick Wit” columns they write for the Philadelphia Inquirer. New York Times bestselling author Lisa is the 56-year-old single mom of Francesca, a 25-year-old aspiring novelist and new resident of New York City. They work to establish boundaries and maintain a lifelong connection as Lisa settles into her Philadelphia-area empty nest (well, except for dogs, cats, chickens, and an errant fawn) and Francesca ventures out into the big city (complete with, alas, a frequent flasher). As always, Lisa and Francesca write about (grand-) Mother Mary with admiration, occasional frustration, and love. There’s a lot of love in this book; readers who have affectionate families will feel at home, and those who don’t will enjoy these relatives who are also friends. As in their previous books, the women muse on dating, aging, and carbs; the vagaries of home improvements, swimming, and online shopping are also addressed. Francesca’s contributions are, like her mother’s, by turns funny and poignant; “I Love You, Man,” about bro-ing out with mom (over action movies, gross-out comedy, and sports) is a hoot, and “Grandmother Whisperer,” wherein she brokers communication between the generations, is sweet and wise. Family photos round out this delightful collection of essays that are fun to read, share, and ponder.
