Description
Rory McGovern is entering the prime of her life when her husband loses his dream job and announces he feels like 'taking a break'. Rory was already spread thin and now, without warning, she is single-parenting two kids, juggling their science projects, flu season, and pajama days, while coming to terms with her disintegrating marriage. Without Blake, her only hope is to accept a full-time position working for two full-time twenty-somethings. A day out of b-school, these girls think they know it all and have been given the millions from venture capitalists to back up their delusion—that the future of digital media is a high-end 'lifestyle' sitea-for kids! Rory must adapt to this hyper-digitized, over-glamorized, narcissistic world of millennials...whatever it takes.

      • source: Eliza Kennedy, The New York Times Book Review
      • content: McLaughlin and Kraus have done something much more interesting by making Rory funny, self-aware and supremely competent: a fully realized human being. The joy of this book is not wondering whether she will succeed, but watching her do it. Rory is a modern damsel in distress who doesn't wait for a prince to rescue her, but pulls on her boots and strides out to slay the dragon herself.
      • premium: True

      • content: Tara Sands provides a powerhouse performance of another fast-paced and relatable novel from the authors of THE NANNY DIARIES. Sands seamlessly transitions from character to character--from the one-woman show that is Rory McGovern to her kids, her 20-something tech-obsessed bosses, her out-of-work husband, and his mother, who continually enables her son in his refusal to grow up. Rory navigates single parenting--delving back into full-time work and even dating once her husband checks out of their marriage and moves out of the house. Sands creates a believable emotional journey, peppered with plenty of laughs along the way. A.L.C. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine

        May 11, 2015
        Bestselling team McLaughlin and Kraus (The Nanny Diaries) join forces again for a story their fans will recognize, with a single-mother twist. Over the span of a few days, Rory McGovern goes from feeling like she has it together to feeling like her life is exploding around her. Her husband, Blake, has just lost out on a career-changing role in a Netflix series, and as a result he has decided that he needs a vacation from marriage and parenthood. Her freelance job as a photo stylist for Stellar Media’s magazines will not become full-time as she’d hoped, and worse, her editor Kathryn wants her to go undercover at JeuneBug, a new children’s lifestyle website, to bring it down from the inside. Facing Blake’s lack of accountability and her children’s confusion over their missing father, a decisive and empowered side to Rory’s character emerges. Though the story is entertaining, the reader feels little emotional connection to the characters, or more significantly, to Rory’s situation. The novel doesn’t add anything new to the genre, and the story is predictable, but it’s nonetheless a funny and worthwhile diversion.
