ROCHELLE RILEY has been voted Michigan's Best Local columnist twice. Her new book is a collection of essays about the shared adventures, both riotous and poignant, of a mother and daughter as the daughter grows from pre-schooler to teenager.
From the first time she let go of her daughter's hand on the first day of school through her preparations for a daughter's first dance, Rochelle offers experiences that all parents live through, love through and sometimes just survive.
ROLAND MARTIN, CNN analyst and nationally syndicated columnist says: "As I read Rochelle Riley's funny, heartwarming and downright wild parenting stories, I couldn't help but reflect on my childhood... Anyone with or without a child will enjoy this collection of stories that can be shared from generation to generation."
"Rochelle ... shares small moments that are the backbone of life's big, big lessons!" RENE SYLER, author of "Good-Enough Mother: The Perfectly Imperfect Book of Parenting."
