This is a book about me, a really terrific groovy mother, anyone would be proud of, and her, a good smart kid who has my number. She thinks. An honest story of how sixteen years old and forty years old look to each other. This mother and daughter share the very naked, and painfully recognizable emotions of jealousy, wonder, love, contempt and anger as they movingly grope their way towards if not understanding, at least peaceful coexistence. Reading this is creeping into the heads of a sixteen year old and her relunctantly grown up mother and how they are to each other as much as they are to themselves. They are in turn killingly critical, deliciously allied, funny, furious, and always probing. They are together, the most human part of a uniŽversally shared experience.
