A patron review from the Adult Summer Reading Game: More like a series of essays than a memoir. This does reflect on her life and choices but examines more what it means to be a mother and a wife. OK read.

Fantastic! A comfort wrapped in hope for any mother approaching forty and feeling slightly scattered upon reflection of ones younger self. I laughed out loud, came away with understanding for my husband and fostered forgiveness and acceptance for my imperfect self. Must, must read this book!

I read a review somewhere that made me very interested in this book. It didn't turn out to be what I expected but I still enjoyed it. I have no idea where I saw the review but it was more domestic and less humourous than I expected.

"I believe ardently that you should drop everything and run toward your true self," writes Good Housekeeping contributor Kyran Pittman in her hilarious, searing essay collection. The twist: This child of bohemians found her true self in a Little Rock ranch house, where she lives in unexpected bliss with her family. Her tales of modern motherhood are fearless and addictive.
