Description

With her husband often being away from home for work Lucy is often left to deal with all of this alone whilst trying to start up her career again. At the heart of M is for Mummy is the story of a mum trying to do everything she can to help her son. Her struggles through everything that she is going through and coming to terms with in this book are so well-paced and believable that I felt I knew Lucy and I was part of her friendship group. The precocious little toddler is so well-written that he steals the show from the minute he appears on the page.

This is a book filled with laugh out loud moments but will also have you teary eyed in places as you just want Lucy to conquer every tough situation she’s facing in this book. For example, the attempt to squeeze yourself into clean clothes that may still fit has gathered dust in the back wardrobe that has yet to see the light of day in over a year. Still determined to try and have it all, Lucy does whatever it takes to cling onto her career and care for her children, all as she tries to help her extraordinary son find his place in the ordinary world.I rarely see the experiences of real mothers I know reflected in books and am quite disappointed this book didn't deliver on this in the way I had hoped. Literally, with a cello and two young children, her musician husband is on tour, laundry pile, and a performance to prepare for, and she is out of bin bags. Needing to repeat the same things over and over again and requiring things to be just so, his mum Lucy needs the patience of a saint.

This book is really funny and full of lots of laugh out loud moments, I enjoyed it so much I found it really hard to put down. I wish the book had pushed a little further in terms of providing insight into families with autism, it felt like it touched the surface but didn't want to go too far in case it became too heavy, but for me it felt too light for the subject matter (as someone who's living through it).I really wanted to like this book, a sort of 'triumph against the odds' kind of thing, but it really didn't grab me at all sadly. After both of my daughters were born I immediately lost the weight, but I know a few mothers don’t, this one of the reasons why this story is so relatable.
