The best Ebook Mini Skirts and Laughter Lines We thought we were running away from the grown-ups, and now we're the grown-ups. - Margaret AtwoodAmanda Wilson and her husband Phil are now living out their retirement years in a rural village called Snittington in Staffordshire, United Kingdom. alas, the road to getting older appears to be bumpier and more slippery for the couple - literally and figuratively as they deal not only with each other's company but also with elderly neighbors, a college-dropout son, a party animal for a mother, Amanda's ex-boyfriend and moles in the garden.Amanda's story is presented through her blog posts. as a blogger myself, i could relate well to this type of format and it made reading her story more interesting. as Amanda shares her woes and joys on the blogosphere, she amasses an eclectic bunch of loyal followers who become her virtual friends. each time Amanda ends her post, i was always looking forward to reading their witty comments. they were such a solid fixture in Amanda's virtual existence and i felt a little shortchanged whenever they did not make any feedback. when they did, it always brought a smile and a feeling of relief to know that they were still around.all of the characters in this book are so real that i could picture everyone in my mind. the situations they get themselves into are so normal (for want of a better word) - even the "outrageous" ones.there are unexpected twists and turns as well that could either make you holler with delight or teary eyed.there are lessons to be learned here too whether you are in your teens or beyond. the biggest one for me is realizing that more often than not, those things which we wish for are already within our grasp. they may not come beautifully gift wrapped or perfectly packaged but it is how we perceive and handle them that makes all the difference.this book is wickedly funny, thoroughly enjoyable and wonderfully written. author Carol E. Wyer has certainly gifted us with one of the best books this year.Disclosure of Material Connection: i received a copy of Mini Skirts and Laughter Lines from the author herself. i did not receive any payment in exchange for this review nor was i obligated to write a positive one. all opinions expressed here are entirely my own and may not necessarily agree with those of the author, the book's publisher and publicist or the readers of this review. this disclosure is in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255, Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.
