The Other Mother by Gwendolyn Gross
9/10 - This book really challenged my thinking. I thought it would be more about working mother versus stay at home mother, but the issues it really brought up was how as mothers we judge anyone who parents differently than we do, and how that arises from our own self-consciousness as mothers. It also talked a lot about how people balance being needed and needing. I really liked it. I'll be thinking about it for a while. At first, I didn't think I liked it, because I didn't really like either of the main characters, but now I think that was essential to the points.
