About The Book:
Two moms as opposite as a Happy Meal and a quinoa bowl. What a difference a week makes in a heartfelt, laugh-out-loud novel by the Washington Post bestselling author of The Overdue Life of Amy Byler.
Celeste Mason is the Pinterest stay-at-home supermom of other mothers’ nightmares. Despite her all-organic, SunButter-loving, free-range kids, her immaculate home, and her volunteering awards, she still has time to relax with a nice glass of pinot at the end of the day. The only thing that ruins it all is her workaholic, career-obsessed neighbor, who makes no secret of what she thinks of Celeste’s life choices every chance she gets.
Wendy Charles is a celebrated productivity consultant, columnist, and speaker. On a minute-by-minute schedule, she makes the working-mom hustle look easy. She even spends at least one waking hour a day with her kids. She’s not apologizing for a thing. Especially to Celeste, who plays her superior parenting against Wendy whenever she can.
Who do Celeste and Wendy think they are? They’re about to find out thanks to one freaky week. After a neighborhood potluck and too much sangria, they wake up– um, what?? –in each other’s bodies. Everything Celeste and Wendy thought they knew about the “other kind of mom” is flipped upside down–along with their messy, complicated, maybe not so different lives.
About Kelly Harms:
Kelly Harms is an author, a mother, and a big dreamer. She lives in Madison, Wisconsin, with her sparkling son, Griffin; her fluffy dog, Scout; and her beloved Irishman, Chris. Before this midwestern life, she lived in New York, New York, and worked with many of her author-heroes as an editor at HarperCollins and then as a literary agent at the Jane Rotrosen Agency.
When she’s not lost in a book that she’s either writing or reading, you can find her on the water, in the water, or near the water.
I really enjoyed this book about two moms who switch places and learn how the other half lives – a stay at home mom and a working mom. Each has her own preconceived thoughts on how the other has an easier life, but they come to learn more about each other than they may have wanted to know. I think the overall lesson in the book is that it is okay to be whichever mom you are and whichever is best for your family is what you should be. There were a lot of funny parts of the book that kept me laughing! The only complaint I had was that it was sometimes confusing who was who – as it would be with them occupying each other’s bodies!
I think this is a must read for moms, but I have also heard that those who aren’t moms are enjoying it too!
