Emily Jones is a new mum: she’s bought the swank buggy, planned her labour soundtrack, read the books.
“That moment when you realise . . . you have absolutely no clue.”
Then her little girl actually arrives and Emily realises: she has all the gear, no idea – and only 12 months of maternity leave to figure it out. Lonely but not alone, it’s the women Emily makes friends with in this first year who really see her through to the other side. Perfect for fans of The Unmumsy Mum, Louise Pentland and Gill Sims.
Winging it… is her first novel. Having survived her teenage years of pubs, raves, heartbreak and female friendships, Emily Jones thought she knew who she was and where she was going. Now in her thirties, when she brings her newborn baby home she has to grow up all over again.
Praise and reviews
‘I’ve just read your book in two days on holiday, it was everything all new mothers experience. Spot on!’Clemmie Hooper
‘The writing is sharp, genuinely laugh out loud funny as well as being unflinchingly honest to the point of getting slightly choked up. I didn’t want to put this down, a superb read I would recommend to anyone.’
