Listen To the Squawking Chicken: When Mother Knows Best, What’s a Daughter to Do? A Memoir (Sort Of)

Author: Elaine Lui

Why You Should Read It: For those of you who don’t know Elaine Lui, she’s established herself as one of the most refreshing reads of celebrity gossip out there with her site LaineyGossip. In addition to her site, Lui is an eTalk reporter and a co-host on the new CTV show The Social. Her website is her most personal platform and where she introduced us readers to the “squawking chicken,” a nickname she uses for her mother in a slightly endearing way. This (sort of) memoir recounts her upbringing and what it was like to be raised by a tough Chinese mother. Written with both humour and honesty, at the core is strong relationship between a mother and daughter.
