Warm, honest, funny, and empowering, Rattled! is an unforgettable memoir of a life that takes an unexpected turn - and a brave young woman who decides to follow where the road leads.
Everything in 26-year-old Christine's life was going as planned-great friends, a promising job as a magazine assistant, New York City at her feet... even a cute guy. Until the fateful day she realizes she's pregnant by said cute guy, whom she'd only been dating for a few months. The next thing you know, he bails and Christine is left to wonder, What now?
Trading Manhattan for the suburbs, skinny jeans for sweatpants, and all-nighters with the girls for 3 a.m. feedings with a restless infant, Christine chooses to live a life that honors what's important to her - and finds strength she didn't know she had in the process.
This book was not as well-written as I expected, but it was not a huge disappointment. I have to say that I'm having a hard time thinking of more to add to this review. The book is good, but not memorable. Yes, she chooses to be a single mom, but that is not unusual any longer. I did not get any life-changing "ah-ah's" from it, which I frequently do from a memoir and is the reason I enjoy reading them. Every one's life is unique, but a good memoir needs to also be uniquely written.

Would you try another book from Christine Coppa and/or Emily Bauer?
The story was somewhat interesting but the narrators voice was irratating.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
No surprise since she wanted to be independent (yea, with the whole familys help).
What didn’t you like about Emily Bauer’s performance?
Did Rattled!: A Memoir inspire you to do anything?
Any additional comments?
Very inexpensive, so worth the listening.
