Publisher's Summary

Not quite knocked up...

Like everyone in New York media, editor Liz Buckley runs on cupcakes, caffeine, and cocktails. But at 31, she's plateaued at Paddy Cakes, a glossy baby magazine that flogs thousand-dollar strollers to entitled, hypercompetitive spawn-havers.

Liz has spent years working a gazillion hours a week picking up the slack for coworkers with kids, and she's tired of it. So one day when her stress-related nausea is mistaken for morning sickness by her bosses - boom! Liz is promoted to the mommy track. She decides to run with it and plans to use her paid time off to figure out her life: work, love, and otherwise. It'll be her "meternity" leave.

By day Liz rocks a foam-rubber belly under fab maternity outfits. By night she dumps the bump for karaoke nights and boozy dinners out. But how long can she keep up her charade...and hide it from the guy who might just be The One?

As her "due date" approaches, Liz is exhausted - and exhilarated - by the ruse, the guilt, and the feelings brought on by a totally fictional belly tenant...about happiness, success, family, and the nature of love.

    "I wanted to hate it"

    I got to this book through all the controversy caused by the author's remarks liking maternity leave to a sabbatical. as a mom, it made me really mad and I wanted to read her book to further criticize her. However, this was an interesting story of a woman who made a crazy choice but grew up through it and learned things about her self. Is it a literary masterpiece? not at all. At times it is childish and Liz is every millennial cliche of entitlement and shallowness. Is it the book I wanted to hate? not at all! I must be a millenial cliche myself, becuase I could identify with Liz...sometimes. It is a fun book that keeps you reading and helps cope with the stress of traffic.
