Michael prepares for his first day of kindergarten, Elly returns to school to complete her English degree, the family adopts Mrs. Bairda s sheepdog, a.k.a. Farley, Elizabeth grows from baby to toddler, and despite her best efforts, Elly can do nothing to treat Johna s hopelessly incurable fashion sense. It takes a keen eye to recognize lifea s shared experiences and an even keener intellect to assemble those moments in a humorous and heartfelt way. With For Better or For Worse, Johnston elevates everyday aspects of life into brilliant observations on personal career goals, parenting choices, and coffee klatch friendships.
