On Labor Day weekend, a midwife's favorite holiday, Louise Sloan, a year-old lesbian, had semen Fed Exed to her mother's summer place in Kennebunkport, Maine. Sloan, a magazine writer and editor, had always imagined she'd become a mother as part of a couple. Instead, here she was, a single woman accepting delivery of a stranger's sperm at the summer home of her year-old Republican Southern mother, then informing the prospective grandmother that she was headed upstairs by herself to "baste. In her early 40s, she writes, her biological clock had begun to sound like a "car alarm. In the book, Sloan weaves together the experiences of other mothers who made the same choice she did, ranging from a Navy officer stationed in Georgia to a Manhattan nonprofit manager who has twins. She briefly surveys the limited research on how such children fare, but mostly she dishes up advice to potential single mothers on everything from cyber-stalking your sperm donor -- not recommended -- to deciding if you should list your child in the Donor Sibling Registry, where kids can meet their biological half-siblings on the father's side.

Post a Comment. When 15 year old Lana Spiggs meets Les, the manager of the local Blockbuster, it's love at first sight. All she has ever wanted is a husband and lots of children so when she finds herself unexpectedly pregnant she's well on her way to seeing her dreams come true. Or is she? This book caught my attention in the book shop, standing proudly with Dyan's other books in their matching paper themed spines. The book itself was intriguing, but not ideal. Lana is very naive, childish and has her head in the clouds, this is very frustrating for the reader.

This mildly light hearted yet extremely realistic and hard hitting books is one of my favorites. Dyan Sheldon has a way of connecting with her audience and really being able to describe a teenage mind and life. This book is about a fifteen year old girl, Lana, who makes some seriously bad decisions and ends up going through a much deserved hard time. One thing I have noticed with YA books is that most of them show parents as uncaring, distant, busy or just in general misunderstanding whereas they show teenagers to be smarter, deeper, and more mature than they should be. She blames her mother for pretty much everything from her bad grades to global warming. On her fifteenth birthday Lana excitedly puts on a bunch of makeup and wears a very revealing and skanky dress that her mother refuses to let her wear which leads to a huge quarrel between the two.
