    "Please look after Mom is Really a fantastic novel. Very poignant. Hard to imagine someone reading this novel and not being moved by it as it carries you through multiple POVs bound to one central theme"

    "This book was written as way to help woman find enlightenment in the often difficult mother daughter relationship. I did not care for the book one little bit, I found it to be written in a way that made me feel inferior to the author- forgive, forget, and live a live a life of bliss…not so easy for everyone. I do not need to be talked down to by this woman. The book basically suggests how I will be condemned to life of inner hell if I do not forgive my mother for being a terrible mother. I hated this book. It is written to be condescending and make me feel like a idiot for not being able to make poetry out of a awful mother."

    "After reading over the plot for this novel, it does seem like it could be an interesting journey Ava will take you on. I would expect this one to have a happy ending and our main character gets her great ending, but the fun is just reading and finding out for yourself!"

    "This book was different than what I expected, and unique in it's telling of dementia. I really appreciate how everything is told from a first person perspective. The way time passes through the novel in short increments really allows the story to be told in a way where you can get a glimpse into how the main character is feeling."
