Published by Beacon Press
NOW IN PAPERBACK, read a section from She Looks Just Like You: A Memoir of (Nonbiological Lesbian) Motherhood by Amie Klempnauer Miller. Part love story, part comedy, part quest, this is the first memoir by a nonbiological lesbian mom (http://www.beacon.org/productdetails.cfm?SKU=0151).

"One of the greatest celebrations of true family values you will ever read. Funny, warm, and wide-open honest." —Ariel Gore, founding editor of Hip Mama

"Miller's vivid storytelling as the 'unpregnant' partner simultaneously captures the unique challenges of lesbian motherhood in the twenty-first century and emphasizes the undeniable universality of first-time parenthood. —Abigail Garner, author of Families Like Mine: Children of Gay Parents Tell It Like It Is

"Why would a straight dad like me love this memoir so much? Mainly because it's superbly written and passionately insightful. But also because I discovered that lesbian moms like Amie have something to teach me, and all of us, about how to survive, and perhaps even thrive, as twenty-first-century parents." —Jeremy Adam Smith, author of The Daddy Shift
