Confessions of a Crispy Mom by Laura Frances

Confessions of a Crispy Mom......I know, she had me at the word Crispy as well!

Heidi here. Confessions of a Crispy Mom is Laura Frances' debut novel, and what a novel it is.

A frazzled working mom of three, Delia Gray, struggles to keep her career, family, and sanity in tack. During one particularly bad day, she lashes out at everyone around her, including her father who has stopped by to visit. When she goes to apologize to him, he gives her a stack of letters from her mother who died when Delia was ten—something her mother asked him to hold onto until he felt Delia needed it most in motherhood. Delia's conflicted feelings towards her mother and the cancer that stole her life leaves her uneasy about whether or not to read them. But, when she does, she discovers a woman she never knew—who struggles with the same things in motherhood that Delia does. Funny and poignant, Confessions of a Crispy Mom is a deeply encouraging novel that will have you asking yourself: How do I make my years as a mom count the most?

Delia Gray and Dixie Boon are the best of friends. Delia Gray and Joanna Fripp are the best of frenemies. Except Delia and Joanna's kids are friends, well kind of. Delia Gray has three kids, a full-time job, and not many organizational skills. She's southern and hysterical to read about
