The Books by Scary Mommy

“Get ready to ditch those Prada shoes (and anything else nice you own) and face reality — you haven’t had a brutal boss until you’ve had a baby. Put this book at the top of your diaper bag.”
— Lauren Weisberger, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Wears Prada

“Any mother who doesn’t stifle a million knowing laughs needs to make sure her funny bone wasn’t accidentally sucked into the diaper genie.”
— Julie Klam, New York Times bestselling author

“Jill has blown the lid off what should and should not be said when discussing the experience of motherhood. . . . [She] dares to say the things that most mothers have thought, but few have had the courage to admit.”

“If motherhood is starting to feel like a story without a plot, my advice is to pretend you’re sick and lock yourself in the bathroom with this book. Highly recommended.”
— Library Journal

“Hilarious, brutal honesty about parenting.”
— New York Times bestselling author and comedian Michael Ian Black

“Jill offers up the perfect antidote to overly earnest parenting guides. It’s like comfort food for anxious moms, served with a side of snark.”
— Cynthia Copeland, author of The Diaper Diaries and Really Important Stuff My Kids Have Taught Me

“If you need an irreverent, hysterical and oftentimes too-close-for-comfort look at motherhood, you need Scary Mommy.”
— The Huffington Post 

“A spot on hysterical look into the world of mommyville. Had me nodding my head in agreement and holding myself like a restless toddler because I didn’t want to put it down. Which, I do not recommend since you may actually pee yourself.”
— Baby Center
