There are moments of joy and wonder-and times of agonizing sadness and doubt. But for working single mother Michelle R. Calvin, quitting is never an option. Every decision, every moment of every day is devoted to keeping food on the table and a roof over her kids' heads.

The journey isn't an easy one-from the daunting pressure of being everything a mom "should" be to stress-induced emotional breakdowns that would put any toddler temper tantrum to shame.

In How I Survived the Game Called Motherhood, Calvin offers a candid look into her life as a mother struggling to balance the roles of nurturer, caretaker, housekeeper, and disciplinarian for her two boys.

Both humorous and heartbreaking, this series of short tales also incorporates advice Calvin has picked up throughout her years of parenting, along with wisdom from other moms and dads she's encountered along the way.

Perfectly proportioned so that even the busiest mom or dad can take a few moments to pick it up and read, this unique memoir is equal parts inspiration and self-help guide for parents everywhere-bravely delving into the weaknesses, fears, and not-so-pretty aspects of raising children that every parent eventually faces.
