Review by: Bohemian Babushka on June 26, 2012 :
This story had me laughing and grimacing with a lot of "been there, done that" thrown in. I'd say this was an almost universal story of a mother dealing with her daughter's puberty ::shudder:: and the struggle between memories of one's youth and the love/fear for today's youth.

As soon as I finished reading I told my 20 yr old daughter to read it- just the title alone started her laughing. Well done mujer, I'm looking forward to reading more.
