This Is Not My Beautiful Life is the story of how Victoria lost her parents to prison and nearly lost her mind. No one ever said motherhood would be easy, but as she struggles to change diapers, install car seats, and find the right drop-off line at pre-school--no easy task--when each one is named for a stage in the lifecycle of a freaking butterfly! She's also forced to ask herself whether a jump-suit might actually complement her Mom's platinum-blonde extensions and fend off the cast of shady, stranger-than-fiction characters (like the recovering addict who scored a reality show when he started an escort service for women) who populated her parents' world. This Is Not My Beautiful Life is a hilariously funny and unexpectedly moving memoir of a just-functional family you will never forget.
