I was a nervous kid. Once, I got so freaked out by the prospect of a speaking part in my first-grade school play that my folks thought I had come down with appendicitis.

PregMANcy: A Publishers Weekly Review (Shameless Plug)

I realized that I never actually posted the review from Publishers Weekly of PregMANcy. For those unfamiliar, PW is kind of the industry standard for distributors, bookstore owners and other buyers to decide what is worth picking up.
