'Multiple Choice' by Claire Cook

Title: Multiple Choice
Author: Claire Cook
Release Date: June 7th, 2005

Publisher:  NAL Trade
Source: Bought
Genre: Chick-lit


A new laugh-out-loud novel from the national bestselling author of Must Love Dogs

There was a time when March Monroe thought she and her daughter Olivia would never really cut the cord. Now Olivia is off to college and March is secretly doing the same thing. It's a high-voltage shock when they run into each other as student interns at the local radio station. From the author of Must Love Dogs, this effervescent story will strike a chord with women of all ages-whether they have kids in college or are just now choosing their majors. Required reading for absolute enjoyment!

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

'Multiple Choice' by Claire Cook is told from March Monroe's perspective. March Monroe is a 40 something mother of two, who decided to go back to college at the same time as her 18-year-old daughter without telling her so. When they bumped into each other during their internship, her daughter, Olivia, was mad at her Mom for several reasons.

       'Multiple Choice' focuses on how March balances her life as a wife, a mother and a college student. I enjoy reading this book. The story line is interesting for me as I get a glimpse of what adults feel about us youngsters and what they think about college life.

I feel that 'Multiple Choice' is really a breezy read but I feel that the story kind of ended abruptly. There are some events that arose throughout the story that were left without a resolution, which left me somewhat disappointed. Anyway, I still enjoy the concept of this whole story line.
