Summary
"Filled with dry humor, sharp wit, and motherly care, Karen Duffy offers timeless pearls of wisdom. When she was diagnosed with a life-threatening neurological disease, she decided that to survive, she had to learn to laugh. In adulthood and motherhood, she has found that she has earned more than her fair share of wisdom and wisecracks to offer her teenage son. These are her stories, advice, and insights that have helped her embrace all that her whirlwind life has thrown her way"--
