A hilarious and heart-warming debut that captures the dramas, delights and delirium of modern parenting.

Going from one child to two is never easy for a family, but when Emma’s husband simultaneously fathers a third child with another woman, things get very tricky, very fast. He leaves Emma for his new family, who soon move in a few doors up the street, which makes for a convenient but lopsided co-parenting arrangement, not to mention some interesting neighbourhood gossip. Three years later, Emma is no longer trying to be the best wife and mother – now she has to be the best ex-wife, and the best part-time parent to her ex’s love child, and that’s before she even thinks about adding a new man to the mix. Set in an upwardly mobile, ultra-competitive suburb, this funny, biting, charming comedy looks at the roles we play, how we compete, and what happens when we dare to strive for second best.

'Jessica Dettmann is a fine comic writer. She has an eye for the small details, irritations and inspirations of life which coupled with a truly original turn of phrase and great way with a gag makes for sparkling and heart-warming reading.'
Ben Elton, comedian
