I had watched the tellie show BEFORE I read the book, so I kept finding myself comparing the two. It was a quick read (I read it in 2 days) and it was nice to see a pregnancy from the beginning to the end not idealized as "perfect" ... because honestly, is there such a thing? I think that the bits Lara says are things that those of us that are mothers have always wanted to say outloud!! I did chuckle and laugh out loud a couple of times ... I'd recommend the book, even if you didn't like the telly series (although I did), because they really are totally different. Risa Green is working on a sequel about life with baby ...

Total chick lit, but I have to say that I laughed out loud many times. There was so much that reminded me of my own first pregnancy. I highly recommend this book.

As a guidance counselor at an elite Bel Air high school Lara Stone is not ready to have a bratty kid of her own but her husband has other plans and she finds herself deep within the underbelly of pregnancy. Her mood doesn't improve when she finds she is given the task of getting the punk, outcast daughter of a famous movie director into a competitive college. She finds that expecting is not what she expected. Very amusing!!

A good read but I really hope the author didn't base the main character on herself....what a snot!

All I can say is Lara Stone is such a complainer! I couldn't stand her. I didn't even finish the book.
