Mom's Night Out by Tricia Goyer
Synopsis: Mom’s Night Out is a novelization of the hilarious family comedy that celebrates real family life—where everything can go wrong and still turn out all right.
All Allyson and her friends want is a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and conversation . . . a long-needed moms’ night out. But in order to enjoy high heels, adult conversation and food not served in a bag, they need their husbands to watch the kids for a few hours—what could go wrong?
Chronicling one night out gone awry, three harried moms, their husbands, a sister-in-law with a misplaced baby, a tattoo parlor owner, a motorcycle gang, and a bewildered cabbie all learn to embrace the beautiful mess called parenting. This book spotlights the unfulfilled expectations and serial self-doubts many moms feel . . . then reassures us that the key is raising kids in a loving home. Mom’s Night Out is an endearing, true-to-life comedy.
My review: I was not sure of this book at first when I saw it but I am glad I gave it a chance. It was a funny quick read for me. The fact that is is about everyday people made it seem real to me. I can see this happening on any given night in any given town. I think most moms would enjoy reading this book as there is at least one part or another that you have lived through yourself so now is your chance to sit back and laugh about it. If you are looking for a book to read when you are feeling down this is a good one as it will have you smiling by then end When you are done reading the book grab your friends and head to the movies as you guessed it this book has been made into a movie as well staring some great actors
