Odd Mom Out

Thursday, August 04, 2011

I recently just finished reading Odd Mom Out by Jane Porter, who was also the author of Flirting with Forty. I quite enjoyed this book; although, it's another book empowering women to be comfortable about being different in their own quirky ways. It was entertaining and in some ways relateable for all types of women. Sometimes we need to fit in a little but we should always be true to ourselves.

The synopsis on the back of the book describes the story as: "Advertising executive Marta Zinsser is a poster child for her wealthy Seattle suburb - and nothing could please her more. This former New Yorker wears combat boots, not Manolos, and drives a righteous Harley hog instead of a Mercedes SUV. Now she's launching her own agency in this land of the Microsoft elite, even though her ten-year-old daughter wishes she'd put on a sweater and just be normal.

Can this ex-urbanite remain uniquely herself without alienating the inner circle of smug, cookie-cutter executive wives? And when push comes to shove, can she stop being the proud odd mom out and take a chance at something frighteningly-and tantalizingly-new?"

You can say it's like one of those clique-y teen novels but for adults.

Follow Audrey Allure.

Sounds like a good holiday read. I am currently re-reading some of Erma Bombeck's books. She is hilarious! I often have tears in my eyes from laughing when I read her books.

hope you are having a great weekend.
