This Weeks Question:
This Sunday in the U.S. is Mother's Day, in celebration, what are some of your favorite books with strong mother/child relationships?

I actually had to go through a list of books I've read to think about this one because most of the books I've read either leave the mother out or the child has no relationship with their mother.  The only two books/series I've found are Significance by Shelly Crane and Gallagher Girls by Ally Carter.



In Significance Caleb is really close with everyone in his family because what he is.  As he forms his relationship with Maggie, his mom not only becomes the mother she's always needed, but someone she can go to to talk about anything.  She supports Maggie and listens to her fears and accepts her as her daughter.

Psst...if you didn't already know, this is like my favorite series ever!  You should definitely check it out!!   
So *swoon* worthy!




In the Gallagher Girls series, Cammie's mom is the headmistress at her school, but that doesn't mean she can't be both a mother and the one overseeing everyone's education.  She makes time for Cammie every Sunday for their weekly dinners, even though she can't cook, and she is always available if she is needed.  She not only acts like a mother to Cammie, but to all the girls.







What are your favorite books with a strong mother/child relationship?

I haven't read the Callaghar series yet, but I always thought her mother would be rather crappy, to be honest. XD It's part of the reason why I haven't read the books yet. Argh. Now that I know better I'll have to read the series!

Thanks for visiting and for the follow!
Both series are great! :)

Her mother is kinda cool actually. Besides the not being able to cook part, but there aren't cooking classes in spy school.

Thanks for stopping by! :)

It's kind of sad that parents don't play a larger role in fiction, isn't it? But I guess if all these YA protagonists were properly parented, they wouldn't have the freedom to get up to all their exciting adventures.

Out of Sight, Out of Time was great! I know some people were disappointed, but I felt like because we got some answers, the lack of action and what we usually find in a Gallagher Girls book was acceptable.

Thanks for the follow!

Tara said...

I didn't think about Caleb and his Mom in Significance! But I did love the way the entire family kind of embraced Maggie as one of them immediately!

Great choice!
