Kurzbeschreibung

1. August 2006
From the acclaimed author of Why Girls are Weird comes a second hilarious and surprising novel about love and family and the weirdo inside us all.

Belinda "Benny" Bernstein doesn't brag about her life in Los Angeles, but she is proud of her independence. She's got a job and a place to live, and she even goes out on dates now and again. But when Benny's mother and sister get into a car accident, she drops everything to fly across the country and help her injured, unemployed mom. The only problem? She wasn't exactly invited -- and back in Virginia she finds herself confronting every issue her family has avoided for years, including her mom's thriving sex life and her sister's wild nightlife.

Benny sets about fixing everything she thinks is broken at home, including mounds of clutter and the personal lives of the women she loves. But she soon stumbles upon a stack of letters that may reveal her mother's darkest secret. Benny only begins to understand her mom when she finds herself in a similar dilemma -- torn between someone she can't have and someone she thinks she shouldn't have. If Benny doesn't sort things out before she's sucked into the family vortex of dysfunction, there's no telling when she'll be able to go home again . . . unless this is home, after all.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Pamela Ribon is a bestselling author, television writer and performer.  A pioneer in the blogging world, her first novel, Why Girls Are Weird, was loosely based on her extremely successful website pamie.com.  The site has been nominated for a Bloggie in Lifetime Achievement, which makes her feel old. Ribon created the cult sensation and tabloid tidbit Call Us Crazy:  The Anne Heche Monologues, a satire of fame, fandom and Fresno.  Her two-woman show, Letters Never Sent (created with four-time Emmy winner and Jay Leno Show favorite Liz Feldman) was showcased at the 2005 HBO US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen.  She has been writing in television for the past seven years, in both cable and network, including on the Emmy-award winning Samantha Who? starring Christina Applegate.  Using her loyal Internet fan base, Ribon sponsors book drives for libraries in need.  Over the years, pamie.com has sent thousands of books and materials to Oakland and San Diego, sponsored a Tsunami-ravaged village of schoolchildren, and helped restock the shelves of a post-Katrina Harrison County, Mississippi.  Ribon’s book drive can now be found at DeweyDonationSystem.org, which has sponsored libraries from the Negril School in Jamaica to the Children’s Institute in Los Angeles.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must read! 17. August 2006
Von Little D - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I read 'Why Girls are Weird' and thought the whole situation was really funny. I was expecting this book to be the same way. I was wrong, but not disappointed. I think this book was a bit more on the serious side and there's some heavier things going on with the main characters, Benny and her family.

Overall, I really enjoyed reading it and hope Pamela Ribon decides to write a third book soon!

I literally could not put this book down and read it in one sitting. I've always been a fan of The Ribon Writing, and this may be her best yet. Buy this book - you won't regret it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Loved it Loved it Loved it Loved it 15. August 2006
Von Sharon Magner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book was just so great. Pamie developed the characters so well, and has such a talent for being funny without killing the jokes. My heart was pounding during a few of the situations, and other times I was laughing and other times tearing up. It also kept me guessing until the end what Boobs was going to do with her life.

Pamie is much more talented than many of the more famous chick-lit writers out there already, and I can only imagine who she'll cast to play Boobs when this is made into a movie.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well written and worth sharing with others 3. August 2006
Von M. Hunter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
After reading "Why Girls are Weird", I had immediately preordered this book. It was worth the wait-I loved reading about "Boobs" and the dynamics between her and her mother and sister. I read several chapters aloud to my mother who laughed heartily. Just goes to show, it's not just funny to the 30ish chicks-it's funny all the way around!

WHY MOMS ARE WEIRD by Pamela Ribon

January 6, 2007

Amazon rating 4/5

I loved this book! Belinda "Benny" Bernstein lives in Los Angeles, far from her mother and sister who live across the country. She gets calls from her mother and they always have the craziest of conversations. Here's an example: Her mother would call and tell Benny "I have chlamydia". I was laughing out loud from the very first page, and with lines like that, it's hard not to. Benny's nickname is "boobs", and little details like that just made the story funnier.

Belinda finds out after the fact that her sister and mother were in a car accident, and now her mother can't drive until her broken leg heals. Her mother has also lost her job. So, Belinda decides to move back home to help her mother and sister out (her sister also happens to be living at home with mother).

Living at home is not easy, and when Belinda sees the house, she cannot believe her eyes. It's a wreck. Not only is the house falling apart but it's filled with so much junk there is no room to move. It's not any cleaner outside, either, as the yard is filled with animals. Belinda is resolved to fix her family's living situation by hiring someone to help out around the house, doing whatever is necessary to get the place livable. This is how Belinda meets Zack, a very good looking young man that Belinda thinks has the hots for her, and vice versa. But she's also left behind a nearly - brand new boyfriend (they have no commitments to each other, but she still feels tied to him), Mickey, who she met in a very unconventional way - at the grocery store during a conversation about the music being broadcast on the grocery store speakers).

So, she's got a man at home in Los Angeles that she is thinking about, but she also can't stop thinking about Zack. In the meantime, her mother who seems to behave like a very liberated (sexually) woman is juggling several boyfriends at once, and only one is aware of the other men involved with her. And Benny's sister Jami is always attracting trouble. Benny feels it's her duty to take care of the two of them, to fix things, and her helpful attempts do not bring on feelings of gratitude from Jami or their mother.

While cleaning up the house, Benny encounters some letters that were boxed away, and they hint at a past that she does not approve of, involving her mother and one of the current boyfriends, Gregory. It sets off a series of events that eventually leads to the climatic ending to the story.

WHY MOMS ARE WEIRD was a very funny, lighthearted look at a very dysfunctional family. But there are serious themes that go along with the Chick-lit-like tone, making this novel much more complex than your average chick book. I haven't read the previous book WHY GIRLS ARE WEIRD but I will definitely read it now. Pamela Ribon writes with a funny and witty style which I found refreshing. I may even put this book on my list of top books read in 2006.
