Reality Check

They say life is what happens while you 're busy making other plans. And in the latest update of the Lawso family, life is " happening " and a few new realities have set in. Still adjusting to their status as newlyweds, Mike and Deanna find that two can not live as cheaply as one, and then learn an unexpected baby is on the ay. After discovering that her live-in boyfriend was cheating on her, Elizabeth swaps steady date for blank slate. And Grandpa Jim catches everyone ( including himself) off-guard when he and Iris elope to England. Life, it seems, always has a new surprise in store. Lynn Johnston has been bringing life to the Patterson clan for nearly 25 years, and for readers of more than 2,000 newspapers around the world, life just would n't seem right without her daily dispatch. This is the magic of For Better of For Worse: it is real life at its most realistic. Like real life, it is frustrating, enlightening, heartwarming, honest, sometimes sad, and often very funny. Reality Check gives readers more of what they 've come to expect from Johnston 's beloved cartoon: a kind of connection, a shared intimacy with a family as familiar as their own, and a front-row seat to the enduring, endearing comic saga called life. Like the many For Better or For Worse collections that have preceded it, Reality Check is sure to resonate with fans around the world.
