Highly Recommended Book

This book was hilarious. I loved the cat, the mother, and the crazy stuff the main character went through in her life. I don't normally read women's fiction, but this was recommended by my wife and I really liked it.  

It's called Milk, Turkey and Neurosis: or, How Mother (Almost) Ruined My Life by Gracie Feldman.  Help her out - the poor girl needs a positive change in her life!
