    "Friends, Daughters, Mothers, and Food"

    Thought provoking, frustrating, and disturbing at times. As a daughter, I came away from this book really appreciating the balance my own mother provided me. As a mother of a young girl, I'm challenged to review my relationship with her and how food is presented and discussed. Narration was really good, but I didn't walk away from this book relating to any characters. I guess that's a good thing for me.
