"Lisa and Francesca, mother and daughter, bring you the laughter of their lives." —Delia Ephron, bestselling author

The bestselling and “perennially hilarious” mother-daughter team is back with a new collection of stories from their real lives, guaranteed to make you laugh out loud. Join Lisa and Francesca as they regret drunk-shopping online, try smell-dating, and explore the freedom of a hiatus from men - a Guyatus. They offer a fresh and funny take on the triumphs and facepalm moments of modern life, showing that when it comes to navigating the crazy world we live in, you’re always your own best lifeguard.



Welcome to our collection of funny stories about our everyday lives, which will sound like your everyday lives, except less well behaved.

We’re a mother-daughter team who also happens to be best...

Praise for I Need a Lifeguard Everywhere but the Pool

"Scottoline does the heavy lifting, and her exuberant delivery, marked by a Philly accent, is irresistible. She's a firebrand and, one essay at time, she challenges conventional wisdom on a lot of things. When her tone drops low, almost conspiratorially, it's tough not to join her in a smirk or guffaw...the listening will feel like time spent with friends." -AudioFile
