Publisher's summary

2022 Audie Award Finalist for Humor

Two moms as opposite as a Happy Meal and a quinoa bowl. What a difference a week makes in a heartfelt, laugh-out-loud novel by the Washington Post bestselling author of The Overdue Life of Amy Byler.

Celeste Mason is the Pinterest stay-at-home supermom of other mothers’ nightmares. Despite her all-organic, SunButter-loving, free-range kids, her immaculate home, and her volunteering awards, she still has time to relax with a nice glass of pinot at the end of the day. The only thing that ruins it all is her workaholic, career-obsessed neighbor, who makes no secret of what she thinks of Celeste’s life choices every chance she gets.

Wendy Charles is a celebrated productivity consultant, columnist, and speaker. On a minute-by-minute schedule, she makes the working-mom hustle look easy. She even spends at least one waking hour a day with her kids. She’s not apologizing for a thing. Especially to Celeste, who plays her superior parenting against Wendy whenever she can.

Who do Celeste and Wendy think they are? They’re about to find out thanks to one freaky week. After a neighborhood potluck and too much sangria, they wake up—um, what?—in each other’s bodies. Everything Celeste and Wendy thought they knew about the “other kind of mom” is flipped upside down—along with their messy, complicated, maybe not so different lives.

Critic reviews

“Narrators Arielle DeLisle and Megan Tusing portray the two halves that make up this hilarious story based on switched identities. DeLisle and Tusing give voice to two very different mothering styles in Celeste and Wendy…. The narrators do an excellent job of maximizing the humor behind Celeste as the workaholic Wendy and Wendy as the Pinterest-perfect Celeste. In a premise rife for comedy, DeLisle and Tusing give lively performances that will have listeners laughing out loud. Their nuanced characterizations, a slightly Southern cadence for Wendy, a very high strung personality for Celeste, make it easier to keep track of whose mind we are in, regardless of their mismatched bodies.” AudioFile Magazine

“Both Tusing and DeLisle turn in truly excellent performances as Wendy and Celeste. Always-on-the-go Wendy has a warm southern accent that can exude charm and humor or deliver barbs with equal force. Celeste, a transplant from the Midwest, is generally warm and optimistic, but also firm. Both narrators fully embody every aspect, good and bad, of these women as Harms slowly reveals their layers, allowing listeners to connect with both even as the women clash with each other.” Booklist

“Making a compelling case for moderation in all things, Harms (The Bright Side of Going Dark, 2020) paints her heroines as flawed but loving mothers, each managing in the best way she knows how. The most clever and incisive take on the Mommy Wars since Allison Pearson’s I Don’t Know How She Does It, Harms’s latest captures the messy, complicated, and often all-consuming mindset of motherhood.” Booklist (starred review)
