Blue Plate Special
By Michelle D. Kwasney
Three young women, Madeline, Desiree, and Ariel—who narrate alternating chapters—may live in separate decades, but they struggle with issues that transcend time and place. Madeline is worn down by caring for her alcoholic mother and has been teased since childhood for being overweight. Angry, foul-mouthed Desiree will do anything to avoid her neglectful mother and the unwanted advances of her mother’s boyfriend. And sensitive Ariel struggles with the pressures of taking AP classes and coping with a domineering boyfriend. As the girls’ individual stories progress, the truth unfolds that they are actually three generations of one family. And when the tales ultimately intersect, present-day Ariel’s breakthrough is also a triumph for her mother and grandmother. Beautifully written and impossible to put down, BLUE PLATE SPECIAL offers a fresh look at familiar topics, while also imparting a powerful message about self-respect, empathy, and forgiveness. A perfect choice for mother-daughter book clubs!
