‘Baby groups: a soft, cosy haven for the new mum, right? Um. No. Or is it just me?’ Stevie’s life has changed beyond recognition since having her first baby. She loves being a mum, but between the isolation and being vomited on five times a day, she really wishes she had someone to talk to. With husband Ted working hard to keep the family afloat, Stevie doesn’t want to burden him with her feelings. Turning to the internet, Stevie starts the anonymous First-Time Mum blog and blasts the rose-tinted glasses of parenthood right off her readers. In the real world, Stevie meets the formidable Nelle and gorgeous Will, along with their own little treasures, and starts to realise that being a ‘perfect mum’ isn’t everything. But when the secret blog goes viral, Stevie must make some tough choices about who she wants to be, and whether she’s ready for the world to know the truth... A perfect laugh-out-loud read for fans of Gill Sims, Fiona Gibson and Milly Johnson.
