What does it mean to be a woman and a mother in the modern age?In this passionate, funny and fierce polemic, Paloma Faith delves deep into theissues that face women today, from puberty and sexual awakenings, to battlingthrough the expectations of patriarchy and the Supermum myth.

Infused with Paloma's characteristic humour, and raw honesty about thechallenges of IVF and the early years of motherhood, this book is a beautifulcelebration of women's work and the invisible load women carry. Moving from questions around identity and how motherhood impacts on that, to what it evenmeans to be a 'good mother', how we need to embrace messiness,imperfection and the bitter sweet pleasures of being 'selfish' and puttingourselves first.
