About this item


Book Synopsis

Delivering inspiration and parenting comedy at its finest, * here is one woman's story of ditching her fairytale dreams and falling in love with her unpredictable, chaotic, imperfect life

Kristina Kuzmic has made herself a household name, speaking directly to mothers from the trenches of parenthood via her viral videos and social media presence. She is now bringing her message of self-acceptance, resilience, and joy to book readers. With a refreshingly unpretentious, funny, and galvanizing voice, Kuzmic goes behind the scenes to reveal how she went from broke and defeated to unshakably grounded and brimming with thankfulness. Illuminating the hard-won wisdom from a life always spent one step behind--whether it was as a high school student new to America, a suddenly single mother to two kids, remarried and juggling two teens and a toddler, or the unexpected recipient of Oprah's attention and investment--Hold On, But Don't Hold Still is the book every mother needs to reassure her that she's not only fine just as she is, but that she already has more tools and support than she can possibly imagine. Sparkling with wit, this heartfelt memoir is like a long coffee date with a best friend, or the eleventh-hour text message that gives you just the boost you need to get through the night.

I have never been one to read so called self help books, but this one is so different. Kristina Kuzmic does not preach or even throw ideas at you but tells you how she overcame her struggles and gives examples of what she did. She does not act like an expert and says that what works for her might not work for you. She is truly the most down to earth and caring person, who truly wants to see all people love themselves and succeed at life

Half way through the book and it's so hard to put down! Anyone who has ever been around kids can relate to so much in this book. Even if a person does not have kids there is a lot to relate to. Definitely a recommended read!
