9780312537289: Not Ready for Mom Jeans: A Novel

A laugh-out-loud novel about motherhood, life, and the quest for eight hours of sleep.

Event planner and famous blogger Clare Finnegan expected to go back to work after her daughter was born. After all, she worked hard for her success...and it's not like now that she has a child she has to buy a minivan, wear Mom Jeans, and give up her career! Right?

Despite more than a few pounds of baby weight still left to lose, Clare dons her Miss Piggy Pants and returns to work. She plans a swanky Sweet Sixteen party, pulls off a million-dollar golf outing, has to come to terms with her mother's breast cancer, and is left so exhausted that she can't remember her ATM card's pin number. Then, after another meeting runs late, and she misses another one of her daughter's milestones, Clare allows herself to examine an alternate choice: staying home.

"Lipinski's snappy dialogue and acerbic wit are so engaging, you don't need a minivan to enjoy this ride." –Jen Lancaster, New York Times bestselling author

About the Author:

MAUREEN LIPINSKI introduced readers to the quirky, lovable Clare Finnegan in A Bump in the Road. She currently resides in the Chicago suburbs with her husband, son, two morbidly obese cats, and one demented dog.

From Publishers Weekly:

Young working mothers will relate to Lipinski's (A Bump in the Road) amusing but unsurprising latest. Chicago events planner, popular blogger (Am I Making Myself Clare), and newspaper writer Clare Finnegan dons her black Miss Piggy pants (baby weight!) to return to work after having adorable Sara with cute hubby, Jake. She almost loses her cool when an ex-college flame hires her to plan a society golf function. Clare's also worrying about her friend Reese divorcing husband Matt; her mother battling breast cancer; and the commitment of buying a house. It's all there, but Clare's life via Lipinski's jittery prose reads more like a journal of teenage blog posts than an adult novel. Although it captures the angst of the almost-30 mom finding her way, the manic glee is just too self-aware and giddy (...This Day Needs to Come to Life So I Can Painfully Kill It). (May)
