Description: <p>This Couch Surfing Book Tour event features&nbsp;Matthew Dicks&nbsp;as he discusses his new book,&nbsp;<a href=”″>The Other Mother</a>, in conversation with&nbsp;Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke. Matthew Dicks&nbsp;is a writer and elementary school teacher. His articles have been published in the&nbsp;Hartford Courant&nbsp;and he has been a featured author at the Books on the Nightstand retreat. He is also a Moth storyteller and a two-time StorySLAM champion. Dicks is the author of the novels&nbsp;<a href=”″>Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend</a>,&nbsp;<a href=”″>Something Missing</a>, and&nbsp;<a href=”″>Unexpectedly Milo</a>. He lives in Newington, Connecticut, with his wife, Elysha, and their children, Clara and Charlie.</p>

<p>The one he loves most is the one he knows least.</p>

<p>Thirteen-year-old Michael Parsons is dealing with a lot. His father’s sudden death; his mother’s new husband, Glen, who he loathes; his two younger siblings, who he looks after more and more now that his mother works extra shifts.</p>

<p>And then one day, Michael wakes up and his mother is gone. In her place is an exact, duplicate mother. The ‘other mother’. No one else seems to notice the real version is missing. His brother, his sister, and even Glen act as if everything’s normal. But Michael knows in his heart that this mother is not his. And he begins to panic.</p>

<p>What follows is a big-hearted coming-of-age story of a boy struggling with an unusual disorder that poses unparalleled challenges – but also, as he discovers, offers him unique opportunities.</p>
