‘Refreshing and honest … this isn’t your standard mum memoir’ Psychologies Magazine

How to hold it together, even when things are falling apart.

Laugh, cry and scream along the rollercoaster of family life as Rachaele Hambleton journeys through the parts nobody talks about; the ‘wow’ moments, triumphs, tears and tantrums. This book covers everything we don’t teach our kids in school, understanding neurodiversity, having heartbreaking conversations and healing from being broken.

Rachaele’s deeply personal story reveals the raw truths of parenting chaos, ever-changing family dynamics and the art of keeping it together against all odds. With unflinching honesty, and bags of heart and humour, this memoir shows real messy life and offers a lifeline for anyone struggling. Above all, it tells us we are not alone.
