Book Review: Why Moms Are Weird

Why Moms Are Weird [Pamela Ribon]

I loved it. It was my first time partaking of the so-called "chick lit" genre, and I thought Pam killed it. "Killed it" being a good thing, like how the kids say. I'm not sure whether comparing something to Nick Hornby in this day and age is good or not, but I really like him, and the aspects of Hornby that I really like -- the conversational style, the realistically likeable characters, the pop-cultural references that come across as personal rather than gimmicky -- are present in Pam's work. And there was a relationship triangle that actually held some suspense! A fantastic read, pick it up.
