Synopsis

Mums on Strike by Laura Kemp

From the author of Mums Like Us comes a fun, witty novel about what it's like when an ordinary mum has had enough. It is perfect for fans of Pedigree Mum and The Mummyfesto. It was just a squashed grape on the kitchen floor. Hardly a reason to get upset, right? But six years of motherhood has left Lisa Stratton feeling like a skivvy. Every morning before she's opened her eyes, she starts her mental inventory of jobs to do. And just like yesterday, the day before and every day since she became a mum, she's woken up knackered. So when her husband deliberately steps over the grape because it's 'her responsibility' to run the house, it tips her over the edge. He wasn't always like this - they used to share everything. Then the kids came along and he saw it as an excuse to sit back. But this time things are going to change. Lisa has made a decision. She's going on strike.

Reviews

Brilliantly funny. This book could spark a revolution! -- Fiona Gibson, author of MUM ON THE RUN A book that is so NOW where many mums are trying to get their me back. I wanted to shout Yes at every page but I was too busy laughing and nodding my head in recognition. A must read for any mother going through the mumopause. -- Claire Smith AKA Ministry of Mum


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
