I really liked the book, it is very short, yet entertaining. Every month she promises she will only use the phone to call her mother or I or for emergencies. In fact this book is something that I think could be read to a child so you have nothing to worry about despite the title.
I know, I know, that's extrememly cliche, but what else am I supposed to say besides the truth?

Yet nothing compared to writing.
Now she is going after the one little scrap, and I mean scrap, of asset in the context of the many assets they have that would have been left for my father's original kids from their incredibly hardworking mother, who would have stuck with my father if he had no money.
