Lost in Suburbia – A Momoir by Tracy Beckerman

April 1, 2013 in review,reviews

As I sat in the airport Ruby Tuesdays, guffawing about a Joe Jonas/ hot mom interaction gone wrong,  I knew Tracy Beckerman had it. You know, that “It’ factor. That little something that makes you just love a person, especially when they share intimate and sometimes embarrassing encounters in their lives. Tracy is the real deal and you can’t help but feel comfortable when you’re with her and laugh like you’re chatting with a childhood friend. This is why I was so excited to find out that Tracy was releasing book for all of us to enjoy.

Lost In Suburbia: A Momoir

(How I got Pregnant, Lost Myself, and Got My Cool Back in the New Jersey Suburbs)

Tracy Beckerman, Lost in Surburbia, New Jersey Authors

Lost in Suburbia, Tracy’s blog, has been a critical hit, winning awards for years and being marked at Lifetime TV’s Blog of the Year in 2010. Tracy is also a veteran columnist, having been published in over 400 newspapers. What started as a small column in a local NJ paper has turned into a nationwide hit, and you’ll understand why when you read her book, Lost in Suburbia. Tracy hits on all of those wonderful rights of passage when we become new moms: fat pants, sore boobs, and the inevitable change of your name to Mama. But what she does give us in this Momoir, that’s so different from the rest, is hope. Tracy shares openly how moving from New York City, to the suburbs of New Jersey took away who she was; her unique and innate identity. Then she tells us how she fought to get it all back, through highlighting the funny in every situation.

Lost In Suburbia: A Momoir will be available in stores on April 2nd, but you can order it right now on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books A Million and Penguin. Trust me, you want this book. Be prepared to tell all of your friends to read it as well. It’s that good.

Disclaimer: I was offered a copy of Lost In Suburbia: A Momoir for review. All opinions and side-splitting laughs are my own.

This sounds like a good book. I enjoy reading stories about other moms who share my pain, both literally and figuratively in a funny way.

I always enjoy humorous parenting books. If we can’t laugh at ourselves, then who can? Well, I guess everyone else, lol, but it’s better when we’re laughing along.
