Review Copy Arrival: Stretch Marks by Kimberly Stuart

Stretch Marks by Kimberly Stuart

Received from Audra Jennings of B&B Media Group for the First Wild Card Tour in October.

Publisher: David C. Cook
Publish Date: September 1, 2009

An earth-conscious, yoga-practicing twenty-something is forced to face her estranged relationship with her mother in this comic yet poignant novel about moms and daughters.

Mia Rathbun is an overworked and underpaid Chicago social worker who belongs to PETA and recycles the tops of pizza boxes. Her boyfriend, Lars, is a free-spirited freelance writer (read: mooch) who disdains the conventions of marriage but is happy to build a life with Mia. That is until Mia becomes pregnant.

Left on her own, Mia just begins to accustom herself to the looming prospect of single parenthood when her mother, Babs, shows up to "help." The two have an estranged relationship but are forced to acknowledge their connection as Mia's belly grows and she has few other options. The story is told with Stuart's characteristic irreverent and authentic humour with healthy doses of poignancy and grace.

This looks like a good one. The summary surprised me, based on the title (not what I was expecting!)
