"Just 18 Summer," written by Rene Gutteridge and Michelle Cox, is a well-written book that is needs to be on a must-read list for all mothers. This book is eye-opening, thought-pondering and one that I will remember for a long time as I savor moments with my own two children. Four families face the truth that they are given a limited time with their children as a family after Butch's wife Jenny passes away. This is a women whom they are all grieving the loss of, but her passing also causes them to reflect upon their own lives and families and making the time that they do have together count. I find this book to be very well-written and love that there are four families that are focused upon and the story is told from each of the family's view points. Each family is different obviously and are in various stages and points in life, yet they each have the same thought of making the time together count instead of being caught up in just living life.
