For Kelly, meeting the right guy was pretty straightforward – becoming a ‘spare mum’ to his two sons was more daunting. It had taken long enough to get on with her own stepmum, and now she suddenly found herself sharing responsibility for two mini-humans. Her party days gave way to early starts, jokes about farts, games of hide-and seek, and delicate negotiations with her partner’s ex and a cast of many. When Kelly got pregnant, stitching together the patchwork quilt of their new tribe got even trickier.

In this brilliantly funny, deeply insightful and moving memoir, Kelly tells of how her whole world changed when she became a stepdaughter, how it changed again when she became a stepmum, and how blended families rock her world.

    If you love Helen Garner, you need to read Kelly Chandler. Think Monkey Grip 2.0, but with a heart and charm all of its own. Her vivid writing makes you feel like you're standing in the room with her and her quirky sense of humour will leave you giggling in spite of yourself. Being a mother isn't easy and Kelly manages to capture the good and bad in a engaging page-turner.

      This was a delightful read from a local Melbourne author. Her story is honest and funny and hugely relevant for new parents, parents and of course step-mothers and fathers! A real find.
