"The inspiring and hilarious true story of how a single mother found the strength to transform her life and become the person--and parent--she could admire, revealing the tips and advice that empowered her. 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's now bringing her message of self-acceptance, resilience, and joy to book readers. What she has delivered is a refreshingly unpretentious, funny, and galvanizing book that goes behind the scenes on how Kristina Kuzmic went from broke and defeated to unshakably grounded and brimming with gratitude. Illuminating the hard-won wisdom from a life spent always one step behind, whether it was as a high school student new to America, a suddenly single mother to two kids, a newlywed juggling two teens and a newborn, 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 day"-- Provided by publisher.
Thirteen years ago Kuzmič worked double shifts as a waitress and spent her nights reading by flashlight in the bedroom she shared with her kids. The financial stress and parenting pressures didn't feel manageable-- so she let her feisty side take charge. Recognizing the gifts and tools she'd had all along, Kuzmič. created a social media presence with a message of self-acceptance, resilience, and joy. Her heartfelt and witty memoir will give you the boost you need to get through the day. -- adapted from jacket

Such a great self-help book which is thought provoking. The author made me to visualize everything infront of my eyes.

Great book, I laughed, I cried... Not just a chick book, all parents, step parents and parents to be (actually I think everyone) will get something out of it. Its funny, full of grace and deeply meaningful without taking itself too seriously. So good, I think I'm going to read it again.
