You Can't Iron a Wrinkled Birthday Suit by Sharon Phennah

This title caught my eye when I saw it.  It's unfortunately true.  Aging brings wrinkles and the best you can do is try to hide them.  This story offers more truths about aging and it's very realistic if a bit sad in places.  One lady's mother has cancer and is dying.  One lady's boyfriend has been accused of molesting the boy next door.  Getting older doesn't make life easier...

Boutique of Quality Books and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can get a copy now.

Imagine a group of older women climbing a ladder to get on the roof of an old building to save it from being demolished.  Now imagine them coming down with the press present and journalists taking pictures.  One of them gets a real good "bad" picture...

The women friends meet for lunch, have cocktail hours, and work together through personal issues as well as worldly issues.

The fun thing for me was that their dogs talk to each other and they try to tell the humans things.  One lady is always picking the wrong men so her dog decides to take care of this one.  She succeeds.  You'll need to read it to see what she does.

Despite all the problems, the women keep a stiff upper lift and things turn out happily at the end.  This story shows you that while things change in life as you grow older, you don't have to give up.  You just make adjustments.

I would have loved having this book as a child.  It's a board book of six pages and has over a hundred reusable decals. You can make you...
