Help! I think I'm turning into my mother! College senior Eve Roberts is dumped by her boyfriend and, with nowhere else to go, returns home to her mother for comfort. What was she thinking? They agreed to spend a weekend on a Florida beach contemplating rum drinks, men, and bathing suits, but the tension in their relationship mounts as Eve's mother can't stop giving advice. They trace their shared struggles back through five generations of O'Malley women and conclude that every daughter lives a trilogy - her own story intertwined with her mother's and her grandmother's - and Eve learns that growing up to be like her mother might not be so bad after all.
