Description:

Rory McGovern is entering the prime of her life when her husband loses his dream job and announces he feels like 'taking a break'. Rory was already spread thin and now, without warning, she is single-parenting two kids, juggling their science projects, flu season, and pajama days, while coming to terms with her disintegrating marriage. Without Blake, her only hope is to accept a full-time position working for two full-time twenty-somethings. A day out of b-school, these girls think they know it all and have been given the millions from venture capitalists to back up their delusion—that the future of digital media is a high-end 'lifestyle' sitea-for kids! Rory must adapt to this hyper-digitized, over-glamorized, narcissistic world of millennials...whatever it takes.

Quotes:

McLaughlin and Kraus have done something much more interesting by making Rory funny, self-aware and supremely competent: a fully realized human being. The joy of this book is not wondering whether she will succeed, but watching her do it. Rory is a modern damsel in distress who doesn't wait for a prince to rescue her, but pulls on her boots and strides out to slay the dragon herself., Eliza Kennedy, , The New York Times Book Review

A super-fun romp of a generational collision and a marital breakdown, starring a flustered but steel-strong leading lady., Library Journal

Such a cupcake of a book, it feels like you're doing something more self-indulgent than reading, Kirkus

Narrator Sands ably conveys how harried Rory is without making her whiny or unlikable. Supporting characters are well delineated, and her characterizations of the millennial Junebug founders are #toofunny., Booklist

Tara Sands provides a powerhouse performance of another fast-paced and relatable novel from the authors of THE NANNY DIARIES., AudioFile Magazine
