Recently I received "Mother, Can you NOT?" by Kate Siegel for review. I had not heard of this author's popular twitter, @crazyjewishmom, before this book. Siegel writes of growing up with a meddling but loving mother. Her mother only wanted what was best (or at least what she thought was best) for her daughter, but the lengths she went to make those things happen were extraordinary, and not necessarily in a good way.
The love that the family members have for each other, including Siegel's father, is obvious throughout the book, and while you feel that Siegel is sometimes put out by her mother's over the top actions, she appreciates the love and concern behind them.
