Editorial Reviews

Wendy Shalit
[An] eminently readable book [that] offers an illuminating glimpse into the world of single motherhood.
National Review
BUST Magazine
Whether it's coping with single parenthood, juggling welfare and full course loads, closing the milk bar, or handling an unwarranted and unexpected visit from child services, Ariel covers the ordinary and extraordinary with unconventional aplomb....Most mothering guides make you feel guilty for having a babysitter. This edgy survival guide is fun, pragmatic, and hip.
