Mothers and Daughters

by Kylie Ladd

Four mothers. Four teenage daughters.

An isolated tropical paradise with no internet or mobile phone reception.

What could possibly go wrong?

There’s tension, bitchiness, bullying, sex, drunken confessions, bad behaviour and breakdowns – and wait till you see what the teenagers get up to…

How can we let our daughters go to forge lives of their own when what we most want to do is hold them close and never let them go? How do we let them grow and keep them protected from the dark things in the world at the same time? And how can mothers and daughters navigate the troubled, stormy waters of adolescence without hurting themselves and each other? A clear-eyed, insightful and wildly entertaining look into the complicated, emotional world of mothers and daughters by the acclaimed author of Into My Arms, Last Summer and After the Fall.

A sure-fire hit from a writer who’s been steadily building fans and critical acclaim and is ready to explode on to the bestseller lists.
