"Freaking hilarious. This is the novel moms have been waiting for. "--Jenny Lawson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Let's Pretend This Never Happened

"Perfect for readers looking for a funny, realistic look at motherhood."--Booklist (starred review)

From the creator of The Honest Toddler comes a fiction debut sure to be a must-read for moms everywhere 

There are good moms and bad moms--and then there are hot-mess moms. Introducing Ashley Keller, career girl turned stay-at-home mom who's trying to navigate the world of Pinterest-perfect, Facebook-fantastic and Instagram-impressive mommies but failing miserably.  

When Ashley gets the opportunity to participate in the Motherhood Better boot camp run by the mommy-blog-empire maven she idolizes, she jumps at the chance to become the perfect mom she's always wanted to be. But will she fly high or flop? 

With her razor-sharp wit and knack for finding the funny in everything, Bunmi Laditan creates a character as flawed and lovable as Bridget Jones or Becky Bloomwood while hilariously lambasting the societal pressures placed upon every new mother. At its heart, Ashley's story reminds moms that there's no way to be perfect, but many ways to be great.

A funny read. A great book for new moms. But a good book to read by all-makes us realize how we put high expectations on ourselves!

An easy read filled with the hilarity of new motherhood. I laughed and occasionally cried in relating to this new mother's journey.

If you have followed Bunmi on social media, you will adore this book. She writes with wit and humor as well as heart. She knows the pressure parents put on themselves and gently points out how ridiculous it all is weaved into her character's stories. I read this book in one day and smiled throughout.
