“Beautifully written, a highly literate story of friendship, parenthood, and every other kind of love you can imagine.” —Marisa de los Santos, author of Love Walked InWhen Jill becomes both pregnant and single at the end of one spring semester, she and her two closest friends plunge into an experiment in tri-parenting, tri-schooling, and trihabitating as grad students in Seattle. Naturally, everything goes wrong, but in ways no one sees coming. Janey Duncan narrates the adventure of this modern family with hilarity and wisdom and shows how three lives are forever changed by (un)cooperative parenting, literature, and a tiny baby named Atlas who upends and uplifts their entire world. In this sparkling and wise debut novel, Frankel’s unforgettable heroines prove that home is simply where the love is.
Laurie Frankel lives in Seattle and teaches in the English Department at the University of Puget Sound. This is her first novel.
