"Okay, What are we going to do? I asked Dad. "How are we going to make this happen?" I could see the wheels turning in his mind  as he went into business mood. He spoke in quick bursts as the thoughts came to him. "Sister Ruth was right. You'll need allies."

Q: Happy Mother's Day! Who is your favorite mom from fiction?


This was such a hard question, I mean can a book please have a good mother? Its like no YA books have that. After thinking about this for a while I I came up with the answer of Patti from Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins. I knew she isn't really the mother of Anna, but she is the mother figure of this series, so that counts,  right? She isn't in many scenes in this series, but the ones she is in she is so sweet and kind and understanding. She is just a great person. 

Edit: I just remembered Mrs Garrett from my Life Next Door. She is an amazing mother. In that book she was raising 8 children and doing a outstanding job at it. This women is amazing. 

That's my answer, what was yours?
Happy reading.

  10. Mrs March for Little Women is the perfect mother in my mind - patient, understanding, kind and always loving. She models decent, honest, hard-working behaviour and just wants her girls to grow up to be good, honest, hard-working people capable of finding their own happiness.
