“There aren’t many books that have made me tear up from both laughing and crying — on the same page. Mary Laura Philpott establishes that there can be many ‘yous,’ among them the childhood you, the single you, the married you, the parent you, the career you. Through sometimes painful, often funny, and always heartwarming self-reflective stories, she shows readers that one of you doesn’t have to give way for another — that your many “yous” can coexist as ‘a crowd of selves.’”
