Synopsis

Mums Like Us by Laura Kemp

Attention, all lardies! Are you sick to death of mum-upmanship at the school gates? Have you had your fill of Mother Superiors who lose their baby weight in six weeks while you're still carrying yours years later? Do you crave the company of like-minded mums who will admit motherhood smells not of roses but of dirty nappies? Well, look no further than Mums Like Us , a weekly group where knackered mums can let rip about kids, husbands and work. So join our rejection of perfection, and fight for 'good enough' parenting. And drink. And lots of cake. Stella Smith Mums Like Us Chairwoman.

Reviews

'What an absolute treat! I stayed up to the early hours to finish it and felt rather bereft when I had. I imagine that, like me, readers will be nodding at every turn and screaming at the page Yes, that's just what it's like. I'm not alone - someone else is out there! ... I love it.' -- Milly Johnson

About the Author

Laura Kemp

Laura Kemp started writing to get out of doing a real job. A journalist for 15 years, she turned freelance after having a baby because she couldn't get out of the house, washed and dressed, until lunchtime at the earliest. A columnist and contributor, she regularly writes for national newspapers and magazines, such as the Daily Mail, and spends too much time on Twitter (@laurajanekemp). Mums Like Us is her first novel, which she hopes will strike a chord with exhausted mums who don't iron either. Married with a son and a neurotic cat, Laura lives in the provinces, where she goes about her business ignorant of what's on-trend until it reaches her town, by which time it's out of fashion. She is currently working on her next novel, Mums On Strike, due out in 2014. To find out more visit her website at www.laura-kemp.com
