I’ve known Tracy Beckerman for a few years now and always knew we had a few things in common. After I read her new book, Lost in Suburbia: A Momoir: How I Got Pregnant, Lost Myself, and Got My Cool Back in the New Jersey Suburbs, I began to think we might have been separated at birth, except she got the humor gene (and I raised my kids on Long Island). I could never have written a book even one tenth as funny as Lost in Suburbia.
While I think that anybody and everybody would enjoy reading this “momoir” because it is that funny, it will especially resonate with city loving moms who moved to the suburbs to raise their kids. And if you had trouble losing your baby weight and were not a “June Cleaver” type of wife and mom, click on Amazon immediately and buy this book.
Even through Tracy had a very cool job and a cool life and then spends her entire time in New Jersey trying to get her cool back, she is very self-deprecating throughout Lost in Suburbia. She is very candid about her weight gain, bad hair and all the messes she got herself into. How embarrassing is it to be pulled over when driving, by a policeman, wearing only a bathrobe, with little duckies all over it?
I just want to give you one warning. Do not read Lost in Suburbia: A Momoir in a public place because you will laugh out loud. I am not a big fan or mom memoir books and don’t read them often. However, knowing how funny Tracy Beckerman is I had to give hers a try. I am so glad I did.
I received Lost in Suburbia: A Momoir at a Tracy Beckerman’s book launch party and I would love to tell you about a few of the sponsors there that were there:
Living Fresh Collection – They make healthy and environmental sleep products engineered to promote well-being and better rest. I won the door prize, which was a set of their sheets and pillow cases and they are extremely soft and comfortable.
Office Candy – They sell office supplies for women online. If you like fun colors and designs for your office products, this is the place to go. I received a few items for free in the gift bag to take home and I am using and enjoying them.
