OMGosh, guys, this book can be summed up in two words... "hi" and "larious!" Apparently their is a wesbite created by Stephen and Wayne Miltz that is CrazyThingsParentsText.com.
The book is pretty much self explanatory. It's a collection of texts between a child and their parent. It is organized into categories with texts that have similar themes. Well, within 2 pages, I was LOL'ing. Literally. I laughed out loud and my daughter asked me what was funny and I explained it to her. Since she was 5, she didn't get it, but man, it was funny. Now I find myself using every free 5 minutes I have to keep forging ahead because it is so funny. Of course, being a child of parents who don't know how to text (and Dad refuses because it costs X amount of pennies each text) I don't know how a conversation via text would go with my parents. I did MMS a picture of an open wound to my dad when I was getting stitches in the ER. I got a phone call from my mom 2 hours later asking what it was.
Also, some of the content between parent and child in this book is quite... blunt and things that I would be super afeared to talk to my parents about.
But, long story short... if you have a sense of humor at any age, you will get a huge kick out of this book!!!
