Peace Out!

Rating
Peace Out! is an honest, often hilarious, look at modern motherhood. In this collection of her favorite published newspaper columns since 2007, Danielle Wilson takes on the joys of not being pregnant, the nastiness of potty training, vasectomies, hemorrhoids, B.O., and even the experience of plastic surgery. With four young children and one bald husband, Danielle has plenty of personal fodder with which to work, and is never shy about sharing her misadventures. Her frank style has offended many a suburbanite, including but not limited to Breastfeeding Nazi's, Homeschooling Families, Devout Christians, Volun-terrorists, Non-Spanking Parents, Republicans, and Women Who Live in the Land of Make Believe, ands she receives hate mail on a regular basis. But Danielle's "keepin' it real" motto has also endeared her to stay-at-home and working moms alike, who are tired of hearing about honor roll students and blissfully happy marriages. "Motherhood and marriage suck sometimes, and to pretend that we never want to chuck out the diarrhea-plagued toddler or shave off the snoring spouse's eyebrow is not healthy. Until women start speaking openly about their issues and recognizing that life with kids and husbands isn't always perfect, we will continue to have beautifully coiffed supermoms who are so hopped up on Lexipro and Botox, they can't even laugh when little Suzy drops an F-bomb at bible study." So if you're tired of feeling alone, need validation as a wife and a mom, or just want to laugh so hard you pee yourself, Peace Out! is for you. DANIELLE WILSON Danielle lives in Carmel, Indiana, with her bald husband and four children, and teaches math and social studies at a never-to-be-disclosed high school in Indianapolis. She enjoys B-grade sci-fi movies, YA fiction, butter, and cold beer, and dreams of one day becoming either a labor and delivery nurse or a hair stylist. She prays for peace on Earth, an end to poverty, and world domination by redheads.
