--Emily Liebert, USA Today best-selling author of Pretty Revenge "The great specificity with which Ferner writes about child-rearing. . . helps set this book apart in the field of comic women's fiction. . . Ferner will likely have many fans awaiting her next irreverent volume. A clever and often caustic sendup of modern motherhood."
--Kirkus Reviews "Ferner's book is at times laugh-out-loud/so-funny-you-have-to-repeat-aloud-to-the-person-nearest-you, and at times viscerally poignant in how accurately she portrays motherhood--as well as how tenuous working outside of the home can feel! Most of all, she reminds us that no matter how many children we have, where we live, or how we live, we as mothers are more alike than we are different: we all share a driving, intense love for our children and are at our strongest when we band together."
--Dr. Darria Long, best-selling author of Mom Hacks "This book is as important as it is hilarious-social artistry at its finest. Brandy warms the heart, blows the whistle, and helps us feel less alone in the struggle."
--Beth Barry, author of Motherwhelmed, creator of Revolution From Home "Reading Adult Conversation is like having a friend who is both funny and 100% real walking beside you on the heart-bending and life-upending path of parenthood. You will see yourself within these characters and find humor and solace on every page. Brandy has somehow captured the sometimes soul-crushing reality of parenthood in a way that makes you laugh, feel deeply seen, and provides a bit of therapy all at the same time!"
--Britta Bushnell, PhD, author of Transformed by Birth "...this gripping story is so relatable you'll wonder if she pulled pages from your journal.... Adult Conversation is a much-needed antidote to today's perfect Instagram mom."
--Laura Mullane, author of Swimming for Shore: Memoirs of a Reluctant Mother "Adult Conversation might not sell you on stay-at-home motherhood, but it will make you long for more time to stay at home reading."
--Darcy Lockman, author of All the Rage: Mothers, Fathers, and the Myth of Equal Partnership --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Never has there been a book that has such a clear portrayal of the REAL struggles of being a Mom. We all lose a part of ourselves (sometimes a huge chunk) once that little baby is put in your arms. But we cannot lose all of ourselves. Thanks, A.B.!
Ferner’s story reads like a Sedaris blockbuster: A lovable character is put into simple and even life-provoking situations that are handled with humor relatability and a sweet poignancy. Ferner’s story weaves a tale that fosters a heart-connection, a ride-or-die bond, between her main character and her reader. It’s the book that you read more slowly towards the end because you don’t want it to end.
Sitcom-worthy. Yes! Then we could tune-in weekly!
I’d even settle for a movie.
