LEFT NEGLECTED Maija—our Canned Soup Mom—says, "Right now I am reading Left Neglected by Lisa Genova. My grandmother sent it to me as a hint that I need to slow down. Professional work-outside-the-home moms will see little bits of themselves in this story, I'm sure!"
THIS BEAUTIFUL LIFE Our Non-Diet Dietician Sarah says, "This Beautiful Life by Helen Schulman. Loved this one. An easy read. It was just so realistic for this day and age—it was about a family in NYC and the teenage son gets into some trouble at school when a younger girl sends him a provocative video over e-mail. It's raw and SO realistic. Loved it."
