'Through the Storm' - The parenting memoir America has been waiting for

The mother of Britney and Jamie Lynn Spears is willing to share her parenting wisdom for the low, low price of $24.99 (online and member specials apply).

Lynne Spears was an ordinary mother whose life became extraordinary when the success of her daughter Britney pushed the Spears family onto the worldwide stage. Now, speaking out for the first time in her new memoir, Lynne sets the record straight. In Pop Culture Mom, she reveals a rarely glimpsed view of herself and her family-including celebrity daughters Britney and Jamie Lynn, son Bryan, and ex-husband Jamie. Candid, touching, and richly detailed, the stories Lynne shares reveal the heart of a mother who struggles to keep faith at the center of her life through its many unexpected twists and serendipitous turns.
I love the way Barnes and Noble neglected to update the title (from Pop Culture Mom to Through the Storm) since Jamie Lynn's pregnancy forced a delay in the book's publication.

If they really want the book to sell, though, I recommend more of a truth-in-advertising approach:

    How to Raise a Teenaged Train Wreck (or two) - From La. to L.A., and Back Again
It couldn't miss.
