This book my Role Mommy friends is a doozy. I’m totally a chick lit fanatic so I never imagined I’d be hooked by this serious novel about a family who faces the greatest challenge in their lives when Anna, a 13 year old girl decides to hire a lawyer so that she can gain medical emancipation from her parents who have been using her since she was an infant to help cure their older daughter who is battling cancer. Very heavy subject, but let me tell you this – the moment you start reading, you will not be able to put this book down!
Jodi Picoult is a masterful storyteller who writes in the voices of all of her characters. The twists and turns in the book are amazing and it’s a story that will not only make you cry, but it’ll make you think about what you would do if faced with a similar situation. This is a great book to take along on a vacation, long train ride, or if you have an hour or two at the beach this summer.

It?s one of the most anticipated novels of the season. Paul Malmont?s ?The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril? takes readers on a non stop pulp fiction ride through old New York. You may have already read the reviews calling ?The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril ? one the best books of the summer ? but there?s so much more to this story than just what you?ll read between the action packed pages. The story behind the book is one of the sweetest and most poignant love stories we?ve ever heard. Like most new parents, Paul and his wife Audrey were deliriously happy with the arrival of their son Nathanial but deliriously sleep deprived as well. Doting dad and husband that he is, Paul would get up ridiculously early with Nathaniel every morning and allow Audrey a few extra hours of much needed sleep. Paul started writing the book during these early morning playdates with his baby boy. While Nathaniel watched the Wiggles and Audrey slept, ?The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril? was born. After about a year of these am dates with his little man, Paul had completed the book. Audrey never knew what her husband was up to so you could imagine her surprise when he presented her with a most unique Mother?s Day gift ? his first novel, lovingly dedicated to his wife and young son. Note to all husbands ? a novel beats flowers and a spa gift certificate hands down! PAUL MALMONT PODCAST!!! Want to hear more about this new book that’s already climbing up the best seller’s list?

I just finished reading this book and it’s hilarious. Okay, it’s not chick-lit, but if there were chick-lit written by guys, then this would fit perfectly into the category. In fact, let’s call it Kitsch-lit. This happens to be a true story that reads like fiction. The story of a 28 year old comedy writer who decides to try out early retirement and moves to Century Village, Florida. Rodney moves in with an eccentric widow, her two cats and parrot that mimics his signature phrase “Hey Man, What’s Up?” and his annoying alarm clock. During his six month stint at Century Village, Rodney joins every club imaginable, from Shuffleboard to the Red Hatters Club and comes across a cast of characters that every Jewish kid who has been to Florida can easily relate to. I won’t give anything else away, but this is a great read for young, old and anyone with a sense of humor. Click Here to buy now!
