  "Lynn Johnston not only understands all the little things that drive us crazy, but she has a particular talent for zeroing in on the slights of childhood, imagined or real, and the sheer magnitude of those feelings at the time."—Easy Living Magazine  It's the small moments in life that end up meaning so much. In the Patterson clan, those tiny revelations and bits of joy multiply, laying the foundation for a family that loves and grows stronger every day. Young April dancing in the fall leaves. Elizabeth abandoning her budding maturity to don a bunny costume. Michael pulling an all-nighter, then finding out he's turned in his project a week early. The youngsters in Lynn Johnston's heartfelt For Better or For Worse are growing like weeds—and becoming more special all the time.  In Growing Like a Weed, readers experience a growth spurt of sorts as Michael becomes a man at college. His roommate Weed, while appearing to be a questionable influence ("Never take advice from a guy who crushes beer cans with his head," as Johnston puts it) actually brings out the adult in Michael. A new romance, quality time with Mom and Dad, and a deepening respect for his sister Elizabeth (whom he once called "Lizardbreath") become the way stations in Michael's path to maturity.  But everyone else in the Patterson family is on the move, too. Elizabeth starts to notice boys, while April has become the family's pint-sized philosopher. Elly's dismayed when she feels her bones creak and notices a need for new glasses, while John relives his own "glory" days in college. Then they realize that Michael's friends, Tracey and Mike, are old enough to run a business and have a baby. Everyone, it seems, is Growing Like a Weed.  Fans love the Patterson family because they're a dear and delightful clan who are welcome wherever they go. This collection is certain to entertain!

Remember well how it was to raise my kids--and this brings it all back

I never bought this book.

This book has yielded a rich crop of great stories. The cast is certainly a convincing one. They are all folks one can recognize from real life counterparts, from funny, savvy Mr. Jim Patterson to the spoiled, unplesant April. She's the only one I have never been able to like. (I don't know how she gets by with her mouth. I'm surprised nobody ever put their foot down to her and she takes advantage of everybody. April is the weed growing in the garden)! It was good reconnecting with Gordon, who is a sterling success story (from the poor boy who was often picked on and who lived with domestic violence to the successful entrepreneur -- you go, Gordon)! Lawrence, too, was an added treat as his orientation has helped pave the way for acceptance of gays among his "real" counterparts. Love the book! It was great, as I expected it would be.

Mrs. Lynn Johnston continues to impress us with her very skillful artistic talents and true-to-life storytelling (though she does has an assistant or two in her studio) and all the characters are quite believable and lovable, thus easy to relate to. Especially the funny young Michael! But guess who's the least easy to relate of all. Little Missy Princess April Patterson, of course. That arrogant little kid rules over the whole household with a very sticky fist. She's forever lost in her own little fantasy world and whether she's back in the "reality", she's always throwing temper tantrums, demanding her way, molesting her big sister's personal things, leaving such disgusting messes (including fecal matter in the pet rabbit's litter box), and just plain driving the poor middle-aged mother right out of her mind with her "cutesy" antics. In fact, she even gets involved into two real crisises; one at the riverbank that cost the life of the poor old Farley and the other that left Jeremy Jones with a broken leg in the hospital. But - that's not the worst yet to come...so when she becomes a rebellious teenager - RUN, RUN FOR YOUR DEAR LIVES!
