Book Review : Sacking the Stork
Kris Webb and Kathy Wilson
Pan Macmillan ($30)”Sophie presumed ‘making sacrifices for your children’ meant giving up Bloody Marys and champagne for nine months.”
Sacking the Stork is a funny yet poignant story of what happens when Sophie, the busy Sydney marketing executive, discovers she is pregnant – and has already broken up with Max, her boyfriend of two years. Her support group comes from an unlikely bunch of friends that meet weekly for coffee at a King Street cafe. The book follows Sophie’s pregnancy through to single motherhood and beyond whilst still keeping her sense of humour. This first novel written by two sisters from Brisbane is a brilliant read if you like books with central characters you can relate to. Makes you want to write a novel or have a baby or do both!
