When she tries to feed her baby in an art museum, new mother Lauren Bruce suffers a wardrobe malfunction -- and becomes a poster child for the nursing wars. A politician, running for Massachusetts governor, enlists Lauren to help her win the women's vote. Nursing advocates want to make her a true believer. And a group called the MOMs -- for "Mothers on Modesty" -- wants everyone to cover up. Now, Lauren has to decide where she stands....

"Smart, compassionate, gently ferocious and always hilarious, MILKSHAKE is about the spectrum of women's mothering choices, breasts, breastfeeding, and babes, and how competition doth make fools of us all. Utterly charming."

-- Jenna Blum, New York Times bestselling author of "Those Who Save Us" and "The Stormchasers"
