The writers behind the blockbuster hits Bad Moms and A Bad Moms Christmas and the acclaimed author of No Happy Endings join forces in this hilarious novelization of the hit movie franchise.

What happens when a trio of overworked and underappreciated good moms get pushed beyond their limits? They turn “bad”—ditch the kids, the housework, and their clueless partners with hilarious and heartwarming results.

Based on the popular movies, Bad Moms: The Novel gives fans a new way to enjoy their favorite characters, Amy, Carla, and Kiki, as they smash the Perfect Mom pedestal, take on the grown-up Queen Bees, forge deeper bonds with their kids, get some long overdue respect and recognition, and indulge in a few hours of some crazy fun.

Enriching the chaotic and comedic stories of the films, Bad Moms: The Novel is a sendup of modern motherhood and a celebration of moms gone (temporarily) whack—to good effect.
