Among her worries is a nagging fear that she's turning into her mother--just as neurotic, just as crazy, and just as consumed by appearances. Then there's the handsome, charming, single, and very tempting editor at the local newspaper who has definitely taken a shine to her. Add to that her moody, monosyllabic teenage son, who may or may not be having sex with a new girlfriend. But the final blow to her sanity comes in the form of a phone call from her daughter, who informs Julie of her plans to run off with her new boyfriend . . . who's also her college professor.
"Lucky Me" is a journey into the year when Julie realizes that there are some things beyond her control, especially the people she loves. Wise, irreverent, tender, and funny, Lucky Me is for every woman who has ever felt--despite her most valiant efforts--less than perfect.
