Queering Motherhood represents a unique and well-written collection of essays written by a diverse range of authors, including scholars, activists, and queer parents. The authors employ the "queering" framework effectively, raising intriguing examples and contexts in which mothering may and can be "queered." The inclusion of understudied and rarely interrogated areas, such as queer individuals' experiences of infant loss, and queer motherhood and disability, represents a particular strength of the text. This collection offers scholars, educators, researchers, and practitioners much to think about and would be an excellent secondary text in a variety of university-level courses, including courses on gender, parenting, and LGBT/ queer issues and lives. - Abbie E. Goldberg, Ph.
