Publishers Weekly recently reviewed Blue Lobster Book Co.’s original publication The Mother of All Meltdowns stating that “any one of the stories should draw sympathetic chuckles from women trying to forgive themselves for lapses in their cool in the face of daily frustrations.”
“We were especially thrilled to receive the news that the book had been reviewed online and in the print edition of Publishers Weekly since so few books are given this unique opportunity,” says Crystal Ponti, owner of Blue Lobster Book Co. and lead editor of The Mother of All Meltdowns. “There was also a bit of constructive criticism which speaks miles to their attention to detail and quality of reviews,” she continued.
Two co-authors were specifically praised for their contributions to the book including Michelle Nahom blogger at A Dish of Daily Life and Kristi Rieger Campbell of Finding Ninee. Both stories took on the serious side of parenting.
