I love this author. I read her blog, which is quite amazing. I've been meaning to read this for quite a while, and after finishing it, I think every mother or mother-to-be should read it.
The back of the book:
"Rockabye is Rebecca Woolf's heartfelt and often hilarious account of what happens when an irrepressible young city girl gets pregnant by accident and decides to keep the baby and marry the boyfriend. Forced to come of age almost overnight, Woolf charts her transformation from odd-job doing, commitment-phobic, chain-smoking party girl to wife and mother, trying to adapt to and at the same time rebel against the stereotypes and responsibilities of modern motherhood. Woolf never relinquishes the qualities of her free-spirited, pre-baby self as she clanneges herself to grow up without outgrowing her dreams while embracing motherhood in a style wholly her own."
Woolf, Rebecca. Rockabye. Berkeley, CA: Seal Press, 2008.
