Book Review: Why Moms Are Weird



Why Moms Are Weird by Pamela Ribon

This is Ribon's (she of pamie.com fame) second novel, following up her brilliant first novel Why Girls Are Weird.

This time, boys are secondary to family, as Benny Bernstein leaves behind a burgeoning romance in LA to return home to tend to her mother and sister, who are living in a filthy house with no job and a broken leg. What follows is at times comic, frustrating, horrifying and real when it comes to mothers and daughters.

I thoroughly loved this novel, the style, the writing, and the chapter breaks. If you haven't read Ribon, do yourself a favor and check her out!
