Editorial Reviews

"If you have parents, if you have kids, if you have a heart, Jason Pomerance's Women Like Us is the book for you. It's like a great recipe for life: Combine friends, family, and flaws. Add a dash of sibling revelry, a little hate, a lot of love, and food-all kinds of food. Cook it all over the heat from the kitchen, the bedroom, and the face-to-face fights. This book has it all: Heartbreak, second chances, and redemption. And you'll get hungry reading it!" -Charles Dickinson, author of The Widows' Adventures and the time-travel saga, A Shortcut in Time and A Family in Time "Women Like Us is a wonderful and true examination of deep, real human emotion." -Joseph Asphahani, author of The Animal in Man
