About the Author
Leslie Anne Bruce is a five-time New York Times bestselling coauthor/ghostwriter and an award-winning entertainment journalist, formerly of Us Weekly and the Hollywood Reporter. She is the founder and editor in chief of Unpacified, an online community for like-minded women to discuss motherhood through an unfiltered, judgment-free lens of honesty and humor. She lives in Los Angeles.
"Leslie is truthful, funny, and transparent without being over-the-top. Her stories are raw without being negative. We can adore our babies and motherhood, and still have bad days. Leslie encourages women to be open and I find it very empowering!"
--Hannah Taylor, co-founder of The Little Market
"For those of us who were shocked to discover that modern motherhood is a den of insanity, Leslie Bruce is a lifeline." --Jill Smokler, New York Times bestselling author and creator of Scary Mommy
"I can't think of anyone better suited than Leslie to write a book on the first months of parenting. She is refreshingly honest, non-judgmental and always hilarious. And as a first time parent, I can tell you that sometimes you really need to laugh . . . so that you don't cry."--Lauren Conrad, designer, New York Times bestselling author, and mama
"Both laugh-out-loud hilarious and surprisingly heartfelt, Leslie Bruce is the no-BS, tell-it-like-it-is online BFF every mom needs while navigating those treacherous early parenting years. Whether it's chronicling what mothers think (but dare not say) or sharing warts-and-all #momfail peeks at the reality of life with a toddler on her addictive Instagram feed, Leslie Bruce's razor-sharp wit and sorely needed honesty are always bright spots in my day."
--Nadine Courtney, author of Romancing the Throne and All American-Muslim Girl
"Finally, a mom who doesn't claim motherhood is all unicorns pooping glittery rainbows. Moms need this book."--Karen Alpert, New York Times bestselling author of I Heart My Little A-Holes
"Leslie Bruce's central thesis is one that many women in today's 'have it all' world will feel like a punch to the gut. Fortunately, Bruce also happens to be f*cking hilarious, which makes her book not only an important read, but also a phenomenally fun one."--Jordan Reid, author of The Big Fat Activity Book for Pregnant People
"Honesty-what a fabulous and rare thing that is today. You'll find it in abundance in Leslie Bruce's raw, real, laugh-out-loud account of what becoming a mother is really all about. This book is the stuff you don't see on Instagram. This is a must-read for any new mother."--Raegan Moya-Jones, author of What It Takes: How I Built a $100 Million Business Against the Odds and founder of aden + anais
"Leslie Anne Bruce is the mom friend I never knew I needed. With a rare combination of generous spirit and cutting humor, she strips away the clichés of motherhood and teaches us how to survive the raw, real thing."--Lydia Fitzpatrick, author of Lights All Night Long
