A bestselling journalist navigates the stormy seas of the mother-daughter relationship at its most crucial moment.
With the eye of a reporter, the curiosity of an anthropologist and the open -- and sometimes wounded -- heart of a mother, award-winning author Lauren Kessler launches an 18-month mission, embedding herself in her own about-to-be teenage daughter’s life. From middle school classrooms to the mall, from summer camp to online chat groups, Kessler observes, chronicles—and sometimes participates in—the vibrant, dynamic and scary life of a 21st-century teen.
Funny, harrowing, poignant, and invariably candid and insightful, My Teenage Werewolf is both a canary in the coal mine for mothers of girls and a vibrant exploration of the single most important relationship in a woman’s life.
