The best part of this book is the author's writing style sounds like you are having an afternoon chat with your bff at your favorite coffee joint. I already called a couple friends and told them to read this stat - for your own sanity, you should read it too! Good luck! xoxo :-)
It put a lot into perspective for me. I understood bio-mom much better (even though she would be categorized as "psycho" according to the author's description) and it made me reflect on how my actions are perceived by my man and my step kids. Stepmom-ing is hard, don't make it harder on yourself by feeling isolated or alone in your struggles. Easy read, good lessons.
- I disagree with other reviewers that this book is corny or creepy, I think it is very funny, well-written, and frankly, TRUE.
But what I most appreciate are the excercises/examples at the end of each chapter that help us to prepare and deal with a lot of the difficulties that come with being a stepmom. After laying out the problem, and helping us to vent (needed!!!), the author helps us to positively deal and be proactive about improving the situation. THAT is what helps us get through the challenge of being a stepmom! That is what makes this book so useful.

This is my 2nd time to be a stepmom and I should have read this before the first time!
