There ought to be better zoning laws, Alison is certain, to prevent a clearly inept mother like herself from living next door to the ward’s, and perhaps the world’s, most perfect mother. Alison decides—after the final straw has fallen on the camel’s back of her eternal maternal devotion—to run away from home for Mother’s Day weekend. Her plan is perfect until disaster strikes, tables turn, and she becomes the only one who can save the day. If you—or anyone you know—has ever felt like a second-rate mother, Alison’s story will let you breathe easier, laugh louder, and love a little longer.
