Our quick summary
This is a powerful mix of memoir and poetry, radical honesty and ‘real talk’ from Holly McNish – based on her experiences of pregnancy and the first three years of raising her child. She talks about the things nobody talked to her about beforehand, and by doing this, breaks taboos and reaches out to anyone who feels they are alone, perhaps struggling or shocked by the life-altering event of becoming a parent.
