Forever Friday is a weekly post to show some love to a book I’ll love forever!
BETWEEN MOM AND JO by Julie Ann Peters was one of the first books I ever read that featured Queer characters. While the main character isn’t Queer, his two mothers are and the book revolves around the dissolving of their marriage.
Nick has a three-legged dog named Lucky, some pet fish, and two moms who think he’s the greatest kid ever. And he happens to think he has the greatest Moms ever, but everything changes when his birth mom and her wife, Jo, start to have marital problems. Suddenly, Nick is in the middle, and instead of having two Moms to turn to for advice, he has no one.
Nick’s emotional struggle to redefine his relationships with his parents will remind readers that a family’s love can survive even the most difficult times.
I loved the message of this book… that it doesn’t matter who the “biological mom” is when it comes to loving a child.
