The Package Deal: My (Not-So) Glamorous Transition from Single Gal to Instant Mom

Rose, Izzy. The Package Deal: My (Not-So) Glamorous Transition from Single Gal to Instant Mom. Three Rivers: Crown. May 2009. 288p. ISBN 978-0-307-45433-1. pap. $14.95.

This candid, optimistic memoir readably recounts Rose’s journey from single San Franciscan to stepmother of two adolescent boys in Texas. Clear-eyed, funny observations complement 21 “rules of motherhood” (e.g., compromise but without sacrificing yourself) and show how real people blend.
