“I’m a mother, you’re a mother. We take care of people. That’s what we do.”
Jennifer Costas is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. She is a single mother to her five year old son, her gay ex-husband is late on child support due to trying to get a restaurant up and running titled “Gonads”, (think gay Hooters), and her mother’s health is failing… Throw in a few wacky dates, and she is close to being fitted for a strait jacket.
Once Upon a Nervous Breakdown really pulls at the heart strings. One minute you are laughing out loud and the next you are reaching for a box of tissues. I really enjoyed this story, and I have one of those lovely “book hangovers” now from it. I don’t know how Author Patrick Sanchez was able to get inside the female mind so deftly, but he did and I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a moving book about a 30 something going through some serious emotional turbulence, and coming out on top.
