*** Mother, Can You NOT? by Kate Siegel

Mother, Can You NOT? is a hilarious compilation of the author’s Instagram feed on the antics of her mother, a helicopter mom before the term was invented, who infamously sent an undercover intern to measure the radiation in her daughter’s elementary school. The boundary crossing did not start recently! While her daughter is now an adult, she continues to shower her with calls and texts that probe way beyond a respectful distance between relatives. The stories manage to always stay loving and amusing rather than resentful, which makes for an entertaining, yet kind book.
