My Review: I picked this up as an extra from Book of the Month not knowing much about it. I was kind of expecting a book I could laugh during. It ended up being a lot more serious than I was expecting. There were definitely some funny moments and I did love Amara's dark humor, but it tackled much harder issues than just judgmental mommy groups or elitist society. I did enjoy how the moms in the group are presented as so perfect, but the further we dive into the story, the more flaws we see. It did a great job of showing how anyone can project that flawless, perfect life image (especially on social media) but the truth is we all have our struggles, some darker than others. I really did like the almost fly on the wall view this story takes on but it was definitely missing a little something for me.
My Rating: While it wasn't quite what I was expecting it was still a interesting and entertaining read. A nice reminder that social media perfect life isn't real and there is no point in comparing my parenting to those images I see online. I give it a rating of Three Paws.
