The Baby Plan

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


“Smart and funny, The Baby Plan is irresistible! A winner.” -Susan Mallery, #1 New York Times bestselling author

In The Lizzie Bennet Diaries creator Kate Rorick’s first adult fiction novel, we enter the wild, bewildering world of modern pregnancies. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll shake your head as you wonder where everyone’s sanity went...

Meet the mothers…

Nathalie Kneller: Nathalie’s plan: to announce her pregnancy now that she’s finally made it past twelve weeks! But just as she’s about to deliver (so to speak) the big news to her family, her scene-stealing sister barfs all over the Thanksgiving centerpiece. Yup, Lyndi’s pregnant too, swiping the spotlight once more…  

Lyndi Kneller:  Lyndi’s plan: finally get her life together! She’s got a new apartment, new promotion, new boyfriend. What she didn’t count on—a new baby! She can barely afford her rent, much less a state-of-the-art stroller…

Sophia Nunez: Sophia’s plan: Once she gets her daughter Maisey off to college, she’ll finally be able to enjoy life as make-up artist to one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, and girlfriend to one of rock’s hottest musicians. But after 18 years she discovers the stork is once again on its way…

Now these women are about to jump headlong into the world of modern day pregnancy. It’s a world of over the top gender reveal parties (with tacky cakes and fireworks); where every morsel you eat is scrutinized and discussed; where baby names are crowd-sourced and sonograms are Facebook-shared. And where nothing goes as planned...

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 16, 2018 – Women's lit fans in search of highly relatable characters need look no further than Rorick's contemporary about three pregnancies that intersect in often uproarious ways. Hyper-organized Los Angeles high school English teacher Nathalie Kneller is finally pregnant at age 33 after years of trying. She and her husband, David, are getting everything pulled together to make the big announcement at Thanksgiving dinner. Her dad, stepmother, kid sister Lyndi, and Lyndi's roommate will all be there. It will be perfect. But moments before Nathalie can break the exciting news, Lyndi broadcasts her unplanned pregnancy by suddenly spewing her breakfast into the holiday centerpiece. Amid the ensuing chaos, Nathalie can only meekly utter, "Um, I am too." As the sisters' already complicated relationship takes on new dimensions, they meet Sophia Nunez, the mom of one of Nathalie's students, who's also unexpectedly expecting and at a crossroads in her life. Rorick takes full tragicomic advantage of life's little and big ironies as these women deal with the magnitude and the minutia of bringing new life into the world.
