Publisher's Summary

From the creator of The Honest Toddler comes a fiction debut sure to be a must-listen 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.

    "Awesome Book"

    This book was great! The imagery throughout painted detailed pictures of the characters. The main character Ashley was extremely relatable to me. Overall, I enjoyed the book and look forward to a sequel ASAP!
    The narrator did a wonderful job and was very engaging, making the book hard to cut off. I read this book in one day between work and and home.
    If you haven't read it... It's definitely worth it!

    "so much fun"

    I have never laughed out loud to a book or an Audible but this one brought more than the occasional chuckle I would bust out laughing at some parts. I have never enjoyed books like these so this was an amazing first time experience. I just hope the bar isn't set too high now.

    "Narrator overacted... first book I've returned to audible"

    The story could have been good had the narrator allowed the writing to do its own work. Unfortunately, the narrator had such an incredibly affected tone that I couldn't get through a full chapter. It was cringeworthy. Writing this comedic doesn't need so much interpretation from an overly dramatic narrator. Thankfully audible allows returns. This is my first book to fall into that category. I may try a non audio version at some point since the writing sounded like it had potential to be a good read.

    "Loved it!"

    My kids are now 7 and 10 but this book took me right back to those first few months and what an overwhelming, intimidating blur it all was. I laughed and cried throughout at all of the relatable scenarios. I love the message that we moms are all in this together and need to support each other and not compete, judge or tear each other down. Bunmi Laditan is hilarious and definitely someone I would love to hang out with!

    Story
    "It's like "Eat Pray Love" for the rest of us."

    I laughed, cried (and cringed) through every chapter of this wonderful novel. It picks up where the "Self Help and Spirituality" section ends.
    When you are in the trenches of motherhood; exhausted, emotional, and feeling like you are failing at everything while everyone else seems to have their sh** together... sometimes just knowing that you aren't alone gives you the strength to get up the next day and do it all over again. In those moments we don't need advice or for someone to "fix" us. What we really need is for someone to grab ahold of our hands, look into our dark-circled eyes and whisper: "Me too, girl. Me too."

    That's the kind of kindred spirit you will find between the pages of this book.

    "hilarious and relatable!"

    This book is just perfect for mother's every where no matter if your that PTA mom who looks to have it all together or the late every where mom. It's funny and the narration is spot on! She really made the book come alive with perfect sarcastic delivery. Everything crazy feeling about motherhood​ delivered with a witty story line and great characters. Congratulations Bunmi Laditan! PS make sure to have Tara Sands narrate your next one. She totally gets you.

    "Rings very true - funny!"

    I follow this author on social media and she is funny so I was keen to read this. Elements of this will ring true with all the Mamas I know - it's also a superb summation of the hold social media has over Mothers and the pressures we pile on to ourselves. Thoroughly enjoyable - you will laugh out loud and maybe wipe away a few tears!
