This Sunday in the U.S. is Mother's Day. In celebration, what are some of your favorite books with strong mother/child relationships?
This is a hard question because a lot of times we see mother/child relationships that are terrible. A good relationship that I can think about is the one between Anne and her adoptive mother Patti in Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins (review is schedule for tomorrow). They have complete love, trust and respect for each other, even if Patti is a little overprotective :)
Another one that comes to mind is the one between Kate and her mother in the Goddess Test series by Aimée Carter. Kate's mother was sick and it is amazing the dedication and selflessness that this created in Kate's life; it made her a stronger person.
The last two that I will mention are the relationship between Hazel and her mom (and her dad for that matter) in The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and the one between Cam and her mom (and grandmother!) in The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder. What can I say? These are mothers that will do anything for their sick children.
I guess the question wasn't that hard after all! I can even think of some more now...
