Kathleen West recommends
Don't Make Me Turn this Life Around (2021)
"Camille Pagán once again gives us a heartfelt and relatable story about a woman on the edge. This time, Libby knows she should be feeling euphoric about beating cancer for goodand instead she finds the limits of her unrelenting optimism. She can’t stop her tween daughters from arguing, make her work more fulfilling, or insulate her marriage from the pressures of middle-age. Don’t Make Me Turn This Life Around is a lovely novel about banishing ‘shoulds’ and welcoming the adventures and inevitable pain of growing just a little bit older."
Mom Jeans and Other Mistakes (2021)
"A story of motherhood, friendship, sacrifice, and self-actualization, Alexa Martin's Mom Jeans & Other Mistakes is an entertaining and empowering novel that honors family in all its iterations."
