Hands down the best book I have read in a long time. I was pulled in immediately and loved every minute of it. Alice Pearce is a mother, daughter, wife, book lover and pet owner who is constantly struggling to find the perfect balance. If she focuses on being a daughter – does that mean the kids are ignored? If she is a perfect employee, does the housework suffer? The author, Elisabeth Egan, is the editor at Glamour Magazine. Egan knows books and knows how to write. She gives Alice a sassy, honest portrayal – so much so that I want to be her best friend and sit down to coffee with her every morning. Alice is hilarious. You don’t want to miss this one.
