This is pure escapism, so much fun; if you are looking for a Mother’s Day gift, take this home. We have 25-year old JJ, the ambitious, successful daughter and Beth, her very young (under 40) and even more successful mum. Beth had JJ when she was 16 and to make ends meet wrote about her daily happenings for various magazines. This led to TV and stardom. Now she’s got a surprise to tell JJ, a girl constantly rebelling against her mother’s good advice. In the course of this book JJ grows up. By the end of page one I was smiling, by the end of the chapter laughing, by the end of the book glowing with warmth. The story becomes predictable but en route to the (compulsory for chic-lit) happy ending it is very, very funny.

Synopsis

Most daughters believe their mums deserve an award. JJ Jackson's mother has a whole shelf full...Beth Jackson is a national treasure.
