Description

Return to where the Patterson family began inside this latest collection of For Better or For Worse. Michael prepares for his first day of kindergarten, Elly returns to school to complete her English degree, the family adopts Mrs. Bairda s sheepdog, a.k.a. Farley, Elizabeth grows from baby to toddler, and despite her best efforts, Elly can do nothing to treat Johna s hopelessly incurable fashion sense. It takes a keen eye to recognize lifea s shared experiences and an even keener intellect to assemble those moments in a humorous and heartfelt way. With For Better or For Worse, Johnston elevates everyday aspects of life into brilliant observations on personal career goals, parenting choices, and coffee klatch friendships.
