Product Overview

Amy Scheibe's debut novel is a fresh, funny, witty take on the magic manic days of young motherhood. Her Jennifer Bradley is a thoroughly modern mommy--a former club kid who is married to the man of her dreams and who quit a fabulous job as an antiquarian objects dealer to raise her two children: Georgia, a very advanced age 4, and baby Max.
But it's alarmingly easy to spin a stay-at-home mommy's world on its axis--and Jennifer's is whirling. If it's not her mother-in-law on her tail to expose her precious grandchildren to a better element (not to mention pointing out that dangerous concrete floor in their loft), it's her husband Thom announcing he'll be on the road to Singapore for the next who-knows how long. And is this really the right time for her dad to announce that her mother isn't exactly who Jennifer thinks she is? Or for the ex-boyfriend--aka the Adult Child Actor--to come back on the scene?
An American answer to Alison Pearson's I DON'T KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT, WHAT DO YOU DO ALL DAY? is a sparkling, lovable novel for mommies of all kinds--whether in the trenches or out on the hustings.
"Sharp, smart, and true...Hear one of the few fiercely independent and provacative voices in contemporary women's fiction tell you what it's rally like on the inside."--Laura Zigman, author of ANIMAL HUSBANDRY, DATING BIG BIRD and HER
"A fun read jam-packed with witty barbs."--Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus, authors of THE NANNY DIARIES and CITIZEN GIRL
