by Cathy Guisewite
If you were a fan of the “Cathy” comic strip, this will be an enjoyable read for you. In a series of brief essays, Guisewite explores her relationship with her aging parents, teenage daughter and finding her place in the middle. Some of the essays are funny and some made me teary-eyed. All are delivered with the same wry humor and insight she approached her comic strip. While there are some repetitive themes, she delivers a nice collection that could be read slowly (between other books) or all at once (beach chair time!).
