Are We There Yet by Kathleen West | Publisher: Berkley Publishing Group | Genre: Women’s Fiction | Find it on: Goodreads
Alice loves her job as an interior designer. She’s almost a partner at her small firm, she’s getting national recognition for her work, and she’s balancing success while raising her two perfect kids and a husband who always seems to be in the road for his own work.
But when Alice’s son Teddy is accused of bullying and her daughter (name)’s teacher tells her she needs remedial reading help, Alice sees her perfect world start to crumble. And not all of her friends are understanding of the slip.
A family drama with characters that are infuriating because—if you have kids—you’ve met these moms before (occasionally even been them) and their flaws, their cringe-worthy obliviousness, the poor choices they make in defense of their kids.
West draws an ultimately feel-good story that doesn’t drag. She gives each character their own voice to narrate their side of the story and weaves a story that shows just how complicated growing up (and growing old) can be.
