The Bad Mother's Handbook (book)

Plot Summary:

The Bad Mother's Handbook is the story of a year in the lives of Charlotte, Karen and Nan, none of who can quite believe how things have turned out. Why is it all so difficult? Why do the most ridiculous of mistakes have the most disastrous consequences? When are you too young to be a mother? Both hilarious and wise, it is a clear-eyed look at motherhood - and childhood - in its many guises, from the moment you hear your baby's first cry to the moment you realise that there are as many sorts of mother as there are children, and that love sometimes is the most important thing of all.
