Booklist Review

The latest mother-daughter foray from Scottoline (One Perfect Lie, 2017) and Serritella, following I've Got Sand in All the Wrong Places (2016), again mines the single-but-sassy territory of their respective lives in distillations from their Chick Wit column in the Philadelphia Inquirer. Mature readers will commiserate with Scottoline over her age spots and her distaste for bras. Her confessions include a passion for actor Bradley Cooper, her unruly dogs, and the way her mother, Mother Mary, never yelled she just raised an eyebrow. Though Scottoline's essays outnumber her daughter's two-to-one, she might quip that that's owing to her being twice as old. Still, women of any age can appreciate Serritella's confusion at how to be a feminist at the beach. Though they are adept at turning challenges into funny stories, some are too topical (the recent elections) to hold appeal for long, but otherwise, readers will find plenty of essays to keep them sympathizing with Scottoline's regret that there is no lifeguard in life. --Curbow, Joan Copyright 2017 Booklist
