From the Sunday Times No 1 Bestselling Author

From bestselling author and massively popular blogger The Unmumsy Mum comes this hilarious, irreverent and searingly candid compendium of parenting experiences. With entries including D is for Desperation, F is for Fish Fingers, S is for Supermum and V is for Vagina, it's safe to say this is not your average A-Z.

This book won't tell you what sort of parent you should (or shouldn't) be; instead, it offers a refreshingly honest account of what being a mum to three young children is really like and the surprising lessons that have been learned along the way.

If you feel as though you're not 'measuring up' or are struggling to #cherisheverymoment, Sarah's tales from the thick of it will reassure and resonate with you. Above all, her commitment to telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth will make you laugh out loud and remind you that you are, in fact, doing a great job.

About The Unmumsy Mum

Sarah Turner lives in Devon with her husband and their three boys. She started writing as The Unmumsy Mum after becoming disillusioned with the other parenting literature she had read online. Everybody seemed to be coping so well! Where were the tales of mums tearing their hair out after yet another sleepless night and endless re-runs of Peppa Pig? Surely there were others out there who were trying but ultimately failing to live up to the Supermum ideal they'd bought into? She made a vow then and there to document the good, the bad and the ugly of parenting and her blog (www.theunmumsymum.co.uk) was born. The Unmumsy Mum was voted number 4 in Amazon's Top 10 books of 2016 (as voted by Amazon customers) and was also shortlisted for Book of the Year (non fiction, lifestyle) at the 2017 British Book Awards. You can follow Sarah's everyday parenting adventures on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (@theunmumsymum). Sarah Turner lives in Devon with her husband and three sons.

After graduating with first-class honours in Philosophy from The University of Exeter, she dabbled in careers in finance then higher education before a 'warts and all' parenting blog she'd started to let off steam gathered unexpected momentum and writing became her full-time job.

She has since written three Sunday Times bestsellers: The Unmumsy Mum, The Unmumsy Mum Diary and The Unmumsy Mum A-Z. The Unmumsy Mum was voted number 4 in Amazon's Top 10 books of 2016 (as voted for by Amazon customers) and was also shortlisted for Book of the Year (non-fiction, lifestyle) at the 2017 British Book Awards.

Stepping Up is Sarah's first novel, the spark of an idea coming from a conversation about will-writing and more specifically guardianship, should the unthinkable happen.

Sarah likes bookshops, walks on Dartmoor (when the kids aren't whingeing) and pretends to like running, though she's started Couch to 5k three times and keeps ending up back on the couch. She doesn't like coffee, films with sharks in or writing about herself in the third person.
