REVIEW: Just 18 Summers Paperback by Michelle Cox & Rene Gutteridge


This book jumps into the lives of several families who are each adjusting to phases of parenthood.  The families are friends/family/neighbors and all acquainted with one another.  There is a widower with an “under 10” daughter, a power couple with power kids (at least the parents think they should be), a family of regular folks who are entering an empty nest phase and oldest daughter getting married phase, and a couple expecting their first baby.  The reader peeks into their lives to see how they are dealing emotionally and psychologically with the 18 summers they will have with each child.  Read and see how it dawns on each person about the precious nature of time with our children.  No matter the reader’s parenting stage, the book connects with a large audience.  I really enjoyed the book.  It was sent to me as a prerelease for a review.  These are my own opinions.
