SYNOPSIS:

The Bad Mother’s Handbook tells the story of a year in the lives of three unforgettable woman.  Karen, her teenage daughter Charlie & Karen’s mother, Nan.

Karen gave birth to Charlie when she was a teenager & can’t help but keep feeling that accidental motherhood has meant she has missed out on life. What with looking after her increasingly dotty mother & keeping an eagle eye on her daughter to ensure she doesn’t do anything to jeopardise her chances of going to university, she’s got her work cut out for her. There is something else, something she can’t put her finger on, something’s niggling away at her.  Somewhere along the line something’s gone wrong.  Before too long, Karen’s  life is  turned  upside down. Upon finding out that her daughter Charlie is pregnant, she also uncovers a secret that her mother has been hiding from her all these years.  Both these things will change her life forever.

Charlie’s life too is about to be changed forever.  Not only does she have to deal with the fact that she is pregnant but also the fact that the father of her baby wants nothing to do with her or their unborn child.  Enter Daniel Gale, the new & shy boy at school who Charlie is asked to befriend.   Daniel who is the son of a doctor, has recently moved to town with his parents because of their marital  problems.  The two bond over their current family crises & soon form a very strong friendship

Both hilarious & wise, The Bad Mother’s Handbook is a clear-eyed look at motherhood & childhood, the realisation that no two mothers are alike & that ultimately love is the most important thing of all.
