Her mommy meltdown is seen around the world!

When Quinn Barrett’s son refuses to wear his hand-crafted costume to the Little Wonders Preschool Happy Halloween Parade and Dance Party she loses it -- complete with stomping, screaming, and costume-destruction galore. Not her best day. And caught on viral video.   Yep, “Halloween Mom” is now internet famous.

The posting culprit: tattooed, blue-haired, west-coast transplant Daisy McGulch, out of place in the posh New England town and unable to blend with the other perfect mommies of Little Wonders Preschool.

While she couldn’t care less about organic snacks (paleo-preferred) or the winter quarters of the Little Wonders chickens, she’s not about to admit she’s the one who accidentally brought Quinn’s worst moment to the entire world—she’d be kicked out of town!

But when Quinn and Daisy find themselves unlikely cohorts in the fight for Little Wonders Parents Association supremacy, they also discover they have more in common than they expected…but the internet is forever.  Can Quinn live down her new reputation?  And how far will Daisy go to keep the truth from coming to light?

Hilarious, clever, and unforgettable, Little Wonders offers a glimpse into the high-pressure world of modern momming, with natural toys, scrutinized playdates, PTA politics, and social media gone amok.

The 411:

We have all had that mommy moment that we are not proud of. The one we wish we could change but thankfully most of us haven't had them go viral online. Poor perfect Quinn had her "bad" mommy moment recorded and plastered all over the internet. Horrifying!  That moment changed Quinn's life as she knew it and for the better in so many ways although it takes her time to realize it. 

I must admit that it took me a hot minute to get into this book. I enjoyed the first few chapters about Quinn. Then the story changed for me and I struggled through a few chapters but thankfully when Quinn her and "new" friend Daisy who is having some personal struggles find each other and become fast friends I was all in.

Readers will enjoy finding out how these two very different woman become each others besties and while the internet is forever learning how to make lemonade out of the lemons you have been handed can totally change your life for the better. Very enjoyable even though I lost interest for a few chapters. Now that I finished it, I am not even sure why I wasn't into it. I love Quinn, Daisy and even Shanna.
