Good Morning America and Glamour Magazine call A Boob's Life a Must-read, People lists it in Best New Books, Katie Couric's book curator, Zibby Owens (host of the Moms Don't Have Time to Read Books podcast), names it as one of the books that got her through quarantine... and Salma Hayek is making it into a comedy series for HBOMax!

Leslie, called "a bold new voice for Modern Feminism," also wrote the Target Recommended novel, What A Mother Knows, the book club hit, Wife Goes On, and her prize-winning debut, 66 Laps.
