Very easy and fluffy. Read in one evening. I think this was a good choice for the first book in my "information gathering" for the upcoming baby stage.

I used to write for TV but when I became pregnant, I didn't want to work the long hours anymore. Besides, once I realized that pregnancy sucks, it gave me the perfect fodder for my first book entitled, "Pregnancy Sucks: What to do When Your Miracle Makes you Miserable". That led to ten other books in the Sucks series, plus my new book, "The Stay-at-Home Martyr".More about Joanne Kimes
