Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Mommyhood gets hilariously tricky in this novel from the author of The Descendents.” Cosmopolitan
“An entertaining portrait…We cheer for her warm, self-deprecating characters and hope they continue to laugh together instead of crying alone.” New York Times Book Review
“Side-splittingly snark…[A] smart, funny send-up of modern motherhood, San Francisco-style.” San Francisco Chronicle
“The wit is often diabolical—which is to say, delicious…[a] sly takedown of twenty-first-century parenting…Underneath this wicked wit, though, is a warm heart.” Seattle Times
“Joy Osmanski gives a graceful and attentive performance of this charming and often hilarious addition to the Mommy-Lit shelf…Osmanski handles drama and comedy with equal deftness, and there’s plenty of both here…It’s wonderful fun.” AudioFile
