Rory McGovern is entering the prime of her life when her husband loses his dream job and announces he feels like "taking a break". Rory was already spread thin and now, without warning, she is single-parenting two kids, juggling their science projects, flu season, and pajama days, while coming to terms with her disintegrating marriage. Without Blake, her only hope is to accept a full-time position working for two full-time 20-somethings.
A day out of b-school, these girls think they know it all and have been given the millions from venture capitalists to back up their delusion - that the future of digital media is a high-end "lifestyle" site - for kids! Rory must adapt to this hyper-digitized, over-glamorized, narcissistic world of millennials...whatever it takes.

The story is so light and easy. I didn't want to get out of the car and kept turning it on while in the house (which I never do). I love that it is simple and realistic. A story that you can relate to and doesn't seem so fairytale. The parenting rants made me laugh out loud and feel connected to Rory as if she was a girlfriend. Worst part is that it ended.
I've an avid reader but a very active mom so no time for reading unless is read to me - love Audible!
I enjoyed the realistic portrayal of a working single mom in today's society trying to provide it all for their children; however the character development was lacking and it was difficult to really engage with the characters.
Love the main Character Rory. The struggle to juggle being a parent, having a career, and being a spouse is hard. The author made these characters seem real!!
