How I Lost My Hair Raising Teenage Girls and the lessons I learned - Winner of Reader Views Silver Medal for Humor!








Andrew McKinney seems to have it made: an important job, a great wife and three wonderful children. But when his two daughters become teenagers, life turns upside down. It's as if aliens have taken over the bodies of his loving daughters, leaving him confused and uncertain about what to do.

Follow Andrew's hilarious adventures as he deals with cell phones (from commando raids to decoy phones), wild parties, theft of his beer and a strange neighbour who prances around his pool naked and complains about their dog.

As they teeter on the brink of chaos, Andrew and his wife must determine what to do with their youngest and most rebellious child — send her to university or kick her out of the house? Part memoir and part self-help book, these warm-hearted stories sparkle with wit and wisdom while providing the laughs and support that a best friend would.

How I Lost My Hair Raising Teenage Girls is a parenting comedy for everyone. If you've raised teenagers or been one, then this is the book for you. If you never had children but wondered what it would be like, this is the book for you. And if you ever thought that pets would add to your domestic bliss, then ... this ... is the book for you!
