2008 RITA Nominee
Odd Mom Out is absolutely and positively fabulous. I believe every young girl, woman and mom should read this wonderful women's fiction book.
Advertising executive Marta Zinsser is no poster child for her wealthy Seattle suburb-and nothing could please her more. This former New Yorker wears combat boots, not Manolos, and drives a righteous Harley hog instead of a Mercedes SUV.
Now she's launching her own agency in this land of the Microsoft elite, even though her ten-year-old daughter wishes she'd put on a sweater set and just be normal.Can this ex-urbanite remain uniquely herself without alienating the inner circle of smug, cookie-cutter executive wives?
And when push comes to shove, can she stop being the proud odd mom out and take a chance at something frighteningly-and tantalizingly-new?

As I was getting ready for work I couldn't help but stop and watch all of the ceremonies at the World Trade Center site, the Pentagon, and Shanksville, PA where the brave travelers on that flight stopped the terrorists!
So I'm hopeful no matter where you live that you're saying prayers for those who lost someone dear on that horrible day, for soldier's fighting to protect your freedom, and for those all over the world who have lost someone due to terrorism.
For me, September 11th was a day I will never forget.......God Bless America!
