Summary
"Rory McGovern is entering the ostensible prime of her life when her husband, Blake, loses his dream job and announces he feels like 'taking a break' from being a husband and father. Rory was already spread thin and now, without warning, she is single-parenting two kids, juggling their science projects, flu season, and pajama days, while coming to terms with her disintegrating marriage. And without Blake, her only hope is to accept a full-time position working for two full-time twenty-somethings. A day out of b-school, these girls think they know it all and have been given the millions from venture capitalists to back up their delusion--that the future of digital media is a high-end 'lifestyle' site--for kids! (Not that anyone who works there has any, or knows the first thing about actual children.) Can Rory learn to decipher her bosses' lingo, texts that read like license plates, and arbitrary mandates? And is there any hope of saving her marriage? With her family hanging by a thread, Rory must adapt to this hyper-digitized, over-glamorized, narcissistic world of millennials...whatever it takes"--
Summary
When her husband loses his job and promptly abandons the family, middle-aged Rory McGovern returns to the workforce under two obnoxious 20-something employers and struggles with the challenges of single parenting
