Synopsis: In the United States, more than 15 million women are parenting children on their own and without a man, either by circumstance or by choice. Too often these moms who do it all have been misrepresented and maligned. But not anymore.

In "We Got This: Solo Mom Stories of Grit, Heart, and Humor", seventy-five solo mom writers tell the truth about their lives, their hopes and fears, their resilience and setbacks, their embarrassments and their triumphs. Some of these writers' names will sound familiar, like Amy Poehler, Anne Lamott, and Elizabeth Alexander, while others are about to become unforgettable.

Bound together by their strength, pride, and (most of all) their dedication to their children, they broadcast a universal and empowering message: You are not alone, solo moms--and your tenacity, courage, and fierce love are worthy of acknowledgment and celebration.

Critique: Inspired and inspiring, "We Got This: Solo Mom Stories of Grit, Heart, and Humor" is an extraordinary compendium of exceptionally deftly crafted, well organized. and accessibly presented stories. An inherently fascinating read from first page to last, "We Got This" is unreservedly recommended for community library collections. It should be noted for personal reading lists that "We Got This" is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $8.69).
