Overview

Life with children is rarely predictable, idyllic or sane. Keffler's momoirs chronicle the misadventures of one wretched family, whose father and mother once upon a time asked themselves, “How hard can parenting really be?” A voyeuristic consolation for the familially downtrodden, as well as a cautionary tale for the naively optimistic pre-parent, Year-In-Review confesses with therapeutic horror and humor that sometimes the best a family can do is smile, get in the minivan, and hope the neighbors had their windows closed.

Meet the Author

Maria Keffler lives in Arlington, Virginia, with her husband and three children. She blogs about things like tarantula-milking lawyers and the savagery of familial relationships at www.wastingmyeducation.blogspot.com; she joined the board of a Uganda-based NGO because it's an amazing and life-changing organization (and because being on the board makes her seem serious and meaningful); and is presently learning how to cook without the smoke detector finding out about it.
