If I could make a mother
This is what I would add
Without my little brother
And definitely without my dad
First use two cups of fairy dust
A then a sprig of sweet honey
Then my favorite homemade pizza crust
And her daily chamomile tea
I would make sure to add a big bear hug
With some little kisses too
And perhaps a cashmere rug
Because I ruined the last one with glue
Never wish for another
Because the one you have is all you get
And if she finds out you want a new mother
All she will do is fret
Be sure to add all of the parts
Into a big mommy bowl
Then sprinkle the top with little red hearts
And bake it into a roll
After two days in the sun
Give the mom cake a shove
Then your mom is ready for fun
And lots and lots of love.

This is an awesome summer book for teen girls and moms!
Premise: When poor Boston girl, Stephanie, is abandoned by her abusive mother and taken in by Annie’s Los Angeles family, she feels anything but at home. Her dark complexion and shabby clothes stick out in the golden-hued world of blondes and extravagance. These are girls who seem to live life in fast forward, while Stephanie is stuck on pause. Yet when a new rival moves to town, threatening Annie’s queen-bee status, Stephanie finds herself taking sides in a battle she never even knew existed, and finds that feeling invisible is a wound that can only be healed by standing up for who she is.
