A memoir of 40 weeks and five days of hell. Lesbian single mother Andrea takes an unflinching look at her pregnant life, from struggling with hormones to poor body image to a self-imposed exile from family.
Readers are introduced to her liberal parents who struggle with her choices, her MIA girlfriend, her friends who turn out to be no help at all and the strangers who offer up unlikely kindness.
Real, raw, impossibly cranky and deepy touching. Andrea's self-deprecating dark humour will make readers wince, and send them into fits of laughter.
