When this award-winning author relocated from the city to become a suburban stay-at-home mom, she felt like she lost her identity. Her descent from cool city chick to uncool suburban frau finally hit bottom the day that she got stopped by a cop while she was driving her son to school in her bathrobe. The officer said, ‘I guess I don’t need to give you a ticket for making an illegal left turn, but I definitely should give you a ticket for driving in an ugly bathrobe.’” Between that, and the realization that the mom jeans she had started wearing made her butt look so big astronauts could see it from the International Space Station, spurred Tracy to write Lost in Suburbia: A Momoir: How I Got Pregnant, Lost Myself, and Got My Cool Back in the New Jersey Suburbs.
