I give this book 3 out of 5 birds…. I first want to say that I am a born and raised Idahoan and so how could I not read this book? I saw the cover and knew I needed to. The cover portrays a potential hilarious story. That was not the case. It was WEIRD. I mean absolutely absurd. I am all about role reversal and showing kids mom and dad’s can do different jobs… but the father in this story was portrayed as a horrible git. It was depressing to think this is what people think of my job as a “stay at home mom” or what a “stay at home dad” does. That was my first problem and biggest. I also thought that the storyline was bizarre which can be awesome- but the humor fell flat. I did gasp at the ending because for a kids book it was messed up lol, my kids didn’t understand it but I did…. And is it horrible that that was the part I enjoyed the most? Overall, I’d maybe say read it so you can be like did you read this insanely weird book?

Thank you to Netgalley for a free advanced EBOOK in exchange for my honest review…. And sorry it was probably too honest.
