“This mom’s memoir shows a different side to the new mom—the mom who is exhausted, has an extremely fussy baby, who wonders if she made a mistake…It’s that kind of frankness that makes this book such a compelling read.”
Mid-Ohio Valley Parent Magazine, February 16, 2009

“Vicki Glembocki unleashes a brutally honest untold tale of motherhood in the Second Nine Months.”

Citizen Mom, May 2, 2008

“The Second Nine Months is a breath of fresh, raw, real, no kidding motherhood air. Vicki seems to have entered my brain and sucked out all of my feelings and put them down on paper for the world to read. I wish I could give her a big hug and tell her thank you.”, April 24, 2008

Catherine Seraphin, The Daily Collegian, March 20, 2008

Dan Gross, Philadelphia Daily News, 2/13/08

“Yes, it's a mom book, but it's so different and honest.”
Stefanie Taylor, Baby on Board, 2/13/08

“I read—and finished—this book over the weekend. I didn't intend to, it just... happened. It was just so hard to put down.”
Kris Underwood, Writing in the Mountains, 2/11/08

“With style and wit, she tackles the taboo topics of the challenges, disappointments and adjustments of modern motherhood.”
Philadelphia Magazine, February 2008

“Despite the slew of recent books about the harsh reality of new motherhood, none have given as bitingly honest a portrayal as Glembocki’s memoir of the first year of her daughter’s life. From the frustration of losing her personal and professional self to the demands of a baby, to eventual acceptance and appreciation for her new place in life, Glembocki lets new mothers know that they are not alone.”
—Mainline Magazine, Jan/Feb 2008

“[An] amazingly honest and at times humorous memoir about the initial months following childbirth. I kid you not: after the first few chapters you’ll begin to be flummoxed at just how similar your feelings were (or are) to what Glembocki describes herself as having had…. The bottom line?  Glembocki was not afraid in letting her feelings and experiences out, and I applaud her for it.”, January 22, 2008

“Reading this book felt like sitting down to a glass (or three) of wine with a best frienda friend brave enough to tell you that the first few months (years) of motherhood are not one giant Hallmark moment. From page one I was riveted, laughing and movedand felt so much less alone! But the last page, the only thing missing for me was Vicki's phone number.”
—Stefanie Wilder-Taylor, author of Sippy Cups Are Not for Chardonnay

“A funny, sad, honest, and totally accurate account of first-parenthood disillusionment.”
—Neal Pollack, author of Alternadad

"Vicki Glembocki lends her strong voice to the chorus debunking the senitmental myths of motherhood. This memoir should give new mommies a load of reassurance during those early, often dark days of caring for a newborn. Take heart, you're not alone."
—Christie Mellor, author of The Three Martini Playdate
