Seize The Day Meets Can Of Worms

I was looking up my mom's memoir online to see if there were any new reviews. I found this audio clip from a site called Hold This Thought (if you can't get audio, it's written out there, too). I think it's cool that the passage that person chose is about a young me!

Then there's this review, which is really good. (The cover is the British one, which is nowhere near as cool as the American version...)

This page has comments that seem to be directed at my mom. Mom--you seeing these? The bread-deliverer's granddaughter is psyched he's in the book!

And this page has a lot of reader reviews. Almost all are great. But the rare negative ones make me wonder what I'm gonna do when our new book gets one. Her memoir wasn't written by me and still I hear someone say "read The Glass Castle instead," and I'm like, "you can take your glass castle and shove it up your pompous ass!" (No offense to whoever wrote The Glass Castle.)

Girls of Tender Age, by Mary-Ann Tirone Smith. Check it out.

Mary-Ann and Jere, I cannot wait for the "new book." Jere, I'm sure you'll let us all know about any and all details, including any library or book store appearances near me. I'd love to meet you and your Mom. Pete
