Mother, Could You Not? by Kate Siegel is my latest book to read. Let me give a disclaimer from the start: I should have looked at the Instagram that this book is based upon before I requested this book to read. While this book is funny, it is quite crude. Way cruder than I imagined it would be when I requested it.
That being said, Mother, Could You Not? is at the heart, funny. Kate shares the exchanges that she and her mom make via text daily. A couple of years ago, Kate began an Instagram account where she shares those texts extensively. Kate's family is Jewish and her mother, well, she's quite outspoken.
While I did enjoy the heart of the book, the relationship between Kate and her mother, and some of the funny exchanges, the crudeness was difficult for me.
Again, this is not a fault of the book. I did not read the synopsis thoroughly enough nor did I refer to the Instagram account before I requested the book. Had I done that, I would have known the path of the book.
**I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.**
