"Fans of Amy Poehler and Maria Semple, rejoice! Carolyn Prusa has written an absolute hit. Wry, charming, and all too real, this is a laugh-out-loud gem of a novel." --Beck Dorey-Stein, New York Times bestselling author of From the Corner of the Oval
"A keenly observant, fast-paced comedy that illustrates just how tough it can be - as Prince would say - 'to get through this thing called life.' Finding humor in heartbreak, Prusa presents a strong-willed heroine who copes with one indignity after another, from the acutely embarrassing to the brutally life-changing, all while dodging in and out of the path of an oncoming hurricane." --Amy Poeppel, author of Musical Chairs
"It's not often you read a book that makes you laugh and makes your heart pound with excitement but Carolyn Prusa's debut does just that. Her heroine Ramona uses humor and her love for pop star Prince to navigate dueling crises in her life and takes a surprisingly poignant journey along the way." --Laurie Gelman, author of Smells Like Tween Spirit and Class Mom
"Both insightful and messy in the most relatable way, None of This Would Have Happened If Prince Were Alive will have you cackling, nodding in agreement, and rooting hard for Ramona as she battles various storms -- literal and figurative." --Laura Hankin, author of A Special Place for Women and Happy and You Know It
"This energetic, uproariously funny portrait of motherhood will appeal to fans of Laurie Gelman and Maria Semple." --Booklist, starred review
"Engaging debut...there's a lot to enjoy in this thoughtful outing." --Publishers Weekly
"A story that explores how individual identity and happiness can be unintentionally misplaced in marriage and motherhood." --Kirkus Reviews
