Book Review by: S.E. Young
If you lived here, You'd be home now by Claire LaZebnik was slightly predictable, but had a few subtle twists. Don't let this "must read" decieve you, for it was slightly difficult to get into. The story tells about a young, twenty-five year old woman named Rickie and her six year old son, Noah, who would be the "runt of the litter" if compared to his classmates. When Noah comes home whining about his "mean" gym teacher, Rickie confronts the school director who's unhelpful and soon finds herself in a heated debate with the schools gym teacher, Andrew Fulton. Soon after, Rickie falls in love with him, and him with her. Well written with genuine flair.
From the well-loved author of Knitting Under the Influence and The Smart One and the Pretty One comes a new novel about a young single mother trying to move out of her family's shadow.
Rickie left home a long time ago-so how is it that at the age of twenty-five, she's living with her parents again, and sleeping in the bedroom of her childhood home?
At least one thing has changed since high school: She now has a very sweet but frequently challenging son named Noah, who attends the same tony private LA school she herself attended. Rickie fit in fine when she was a student, but now her age and tattoos make her stand out from all the blond Stepford moms, who are desperate to know why someone so young-and so unmarried-has a kid in first grade.
