Synopsis

'Perfect for the gin lover in your life.' - Sun Have you ever...? A) Opened your mouth and heard your mother come out? B) Wondered whether a bunch of flowers and breakfast in bed once a year really makes up for the 37 hours your mum spent in St Agnes' Maternity Ward? C) Voiced a heartfelt opinion on the weather? If so, the Mills & Boon Modern Girl's Guide to Turning Into Your Mother is for you: a guide to the joys of motherhood - with a feminist twist.

Ada Adverse was brought up in a deeply puritanical household where looking at a cake or using words containing more than one vowel were considered decadences punishable by a night in the coal cellar. But at fifteen she ran away from home and is now the world's leading authority on Having Fun, which is definitely an actual job, she has 'Fungineer' printed on her business cards to prove it, though in retrospect she should have been more clear that this does not mean she specialises in mushrooms. Ada's hobbies include topiary, mazes, homing pigeons, flea circuses, forming imaginary bands in her head, embalming things, tattoos, pylons, and the films of Billy Wilder. Ada's dislikes include predatory mcaws, getting out the wrong side of the bed, collections of masks, and porcelain dolls with realistic teeth.

Customer Reviews

This plopped on my doormat the day before Mother’s Day and I sat down and read it in one sitting. I haven’t read any of the Mills & Boon Modern Guides before but suffice to say I do love these tongue in cheek books. There really is something to be said for dropping the political correctness for a bit, and just having a good old laugh. The Modern Guide to Turning into Your Mother is balanced between funny phrases on each page which relate to the images which look to me like stills from old films from the forties and fifties. Some of them had me roaring with laughter and nodding as I realised that despite their sarcasm they were pretty close to the truth. On giving the book to my Mum for Mother’s Day (of course!) pages were read out loud and my entire family were rolling with laughter and pointing at people with “that’s you” and “you do that” etc. This may be a small book, and very tongue in cheek but it’s a great laugh. I loved it, my Mum loved it, my family loved it! I will definitely be checking out more books in this series! A huge thanks to Ada Adverse and Mills & Boon for the ARC in return for my honest review.
