I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Tips for Tuesday - Books: Invisible Girl and Waisted

We may have been given one or more of the books mentioned below for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

Books: Invisible Girl and Waisted

Mom - Today I am recommending two novels.

The first book I am recommending is Invisible Girl by Jill Childs. An encounter with a homeless woman named Maddy leads Becca to invite her to spend the night. Before, she knows it, Maddy has become a big part of Becca's family's life much to the displeasure of Becca's ex-husband, her son, and her friend  and neighbor, Sarah, who distrust Maddy. However, it turns out that Maddy's being in the area was more than just chance, and  her secret will change lives. This is a book that will take you on an emotional rollercoaster.  At times, it is heartbreaking at other times heartwarming. It will restore your faith in humanity and the power of redemption. Once you have read it you will never be able to look at another homeless person the same way.

The second book I am recommending is Waisted by Randy Susan Meyers. A group of overweight women agree to be part of documentary that will allegedly help them learn how to manage their weight. However, things turn out to be very different than they thought, and they are forced to take matters into their own hands to get revenge on the filmakers who abused and humilated them.This book has a lot to say about the world we live in in which girls are made to think that they are valued for their looks above all, and they are pressured by society to fit into a certain mold. It will make you angry, it will make you want to change the world, but it will also show you that change is possible. It will sadden you but it will also give you hope

And that's Mom's view. Tune in tomorrow for Where-To-Go Wednesday.
