THE GAP YEAR

THE GAP YEAR

Hey- how come nobody told me about Sarah Bird before? I found myself crying openly (in public) as I read the last pages of THE GAP YEAR and wanting to tell every mother I care about to read it. It is about a defining year in the lives of Cam Lightsey, lactation consultant and suburban misfit, and Aubrey, her dutiful band-geek daughter who turns into a teenage nightmare when local football hero Tyler Moldenhauer enters the picture. So good, funny and resonant…it is now my favorite mother-daughter book ever.
