Rate this:
Sonia, a young Brooklyn mother shaken by her unexpected (third) pregnancy, abandons her husband and kids and takes off on a cross-country odyssey in search of an identity separate from her family. She does everything a pregnant woman shouldn't do—engaging in casual sex and smoking weed—as she retraces her past and attempts to reclaim her sidelined career as an artist. Nine Months is a fierce, daring page-turner of a novel—a lacerating response to the culture of mommy blogs, helicopter parents and "parental correctness" as well as an unflinching look at the choices women face when trying to balance art and family.

I devoured this book, but I'm still not sure how I feel about it. The main character, Sonia, is impulsive, sometimes dangerously so, and there's a lot of craziness lived and remembered during her spur-of-the-moment road trip. It's not a comfortable read by any means; it's alternately funny, shocking, disgusting, and sad. But it has the feel of truth to it.

Side note: I do wish there weren't so many typos. Copy editing errors always jump out at me.
