I Was Told It Would Get Easier
Jessica is a forty-five year old single mother who has grown apart from her sixteen year old daughter, Emily. Jessica puts in long hours as a lawyer and is partner at her firm. She knows she’ll have to work even harder to afford the sky-high college tuition that is looming in her near future. In addition to being efficient, Jessica books a college tour to scope out potential colleges and, hopefully, reconnect with her daughter. The week-long trip brings both ladies a lot more than they bargained for, but it’s exactly what they needed.
This book is fantastic. It’s witty, funny, emotional, honest, and real. Told in alternating viewpoints between Jessica and Emily, each has an authentic voice that moves the story along. Fast-paced and realistic, this book makes for a quick, engrossing read. It would be a very good book for mothers and daughters to share together as it provides relatable motivations, fears, and desires that both age groups can connect with.
