The unstoppable, irreverent mother-daughter team presents a new collection of funny stories and true confessions that every woman can relate to. From identity theft to the hazards of bicycling to college reunions and eating on the beach, Lisa and Francesca tackle the quirks, absurdities, and wonders of everyday life with wit and warmth. As Lisa says, “More and more, especially in the summertime when I’m sitting on the beach, I’m learning not to sweat it. To go back to the child that I used to be. To see myself through the loving eyes of my parents. To eat on the beach. And not to worry about whether every little thing makes me look fat. In fact, not to worry at all.”

So put aside your worries and join Lisa and Francesca as they navigate their way through the crazy world we live in, laughing along the way.

    Booklist

  • “The down-to-earth, relatable pair are a lot of fun to listen to as their topics range from family dynamics to surviving the contemporary dating world. Scottoline’s Philly accent and expressive speaking style add to the humor of the stories. Serritella also sounds approachable as a young woman who is trying to navigate life, friendship, and love in the city. The stories—by and large light, easy, and fun—are perfect for a relaxed summer day. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award.”
