Review: Rattled!

Christine Coppa is 26. She lives the fabulous life in Manhattan – roommates and drinks and a job at a magazine and $70 t-shirts.

And then she is unmarried and pregnant. And moving back to New Jersey.

I. Loved. This.

Coppa takes her situation, perhaps undesirable and definitely unplanned, and presents it in a poignant and honest memoir. You root for Christine. You adore her older brother. You fall in love with her son, Jack Dominic. You wonder if you would handle yourself with Christine’s grace, if you found yourself in the same situation.

Rattled! is a quick, rewarding read with more substance than your average beach book and an ending that leaves you with a happy heart.

Check out Christine’s blog, hosted by Glamour magazine, Storked!
