Sisters love each other, hate each other, torment each other-and still manage to stick up for each other. Author Mary McHugh explores the unique relationship sisters share and provides plenty of ways to drive a beloved sister mad in How to Ruin Your Sister's Life.

Sisters have made tormenting each other a virtual art form, despite their familial love. Their emotional and mental tricks can make the physical torture brothers inflict on one another seem like child's play.

Finally girls and women have somewhere to turn when they run out of ideas for making their sisters miserable: How to Ruin Your Sister's Life. Author Mary McHugh's hilarious, sometimes outrageous suggestions provide all the guidance these girls need, whether they're 16 or 60. A few examples:

* Marry her boyfriend.

* Throw away the heads of all her Barbie dolls.

* Sob loudly throughout her wedding.

* Tell your 13-year-old sister's boyfriend that she still sucks her thumb.

* Cut up her Christmas stocking and flush it down the toilet.

* Take a picture of your 55-year-old sister nude, brushing her teeth.

Of course, the best defense is to buy this book before your sister does!

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • A debut collection of witty, biting essays laced with a surprising warmth, from Jen Mann, the writer behind the popular blog People I Want to Punch in the Throat
 
People I want to punch in the throat:
• anyone who feels the need to bling her washer and dryer
• humblebraggers
• people who treat their pets like children
 
Jen Mann doesn’t have a filter, which sometimes gets her in trouble with her neighbors, her fellow PTA moms, and that one woman who tried to sell her sex toys at a home shopping party. Known for her hilariously acerbic observations on her blog, People I Want to Punch in the Throat, Mann now brings her sharp wit to bear on suburban life, marriage, and motherhood in this laugh-out-loud collection of essays. From the politics of joining a play group, to the thrill of mothers’ night out at the gun range, to the rewards of your most meaningful relationship (the one you have with your cleaning lady), nothing is sacred or off-limits. So the next time you find yourself wearing fuzzy bunny pajamas in the school carpool line or accidentally stuck at a co-worker’s swingers party, just think, What would Jen Mann do? Or better yet, buy her book.

Praise for People I Want to Punch in the Throat
 
“People I Want to Punch in the Throat is so good that it’ll make you want to adopt all the cats in the world. I’m not sure about the correlation, but it’s that good. It should come with a warning.”—Jenny Lawson, author of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened
 
“Jen Mann has an amazing way of telling stories that will make you cringe and burst out laughing at the same time. From swinger parties to racist toddlers, she makes the suburbs unbelievably funny.”—Karen Alpert, author of I Heart My Little A-Holes
 
“Jen Mann says the things we’re all too afraid to say. Her honest and hilarious writing style reminds me of David Sedaris and Tina Fey.”—Robin O’Bryant, author of Ketchup Is a Vegetable: And Other Lies Moms Tell Themselves
 
“Jen Mann’s shrewd and unrelenting assault on the absurdity of suburban life is an honest peek into the occasional nightmare that is part of living the American dream. I love Jen. I wish she was my neighbor. It’s so refreshing to know that I’m not the only one who wants to punch almost everyone in the f***ing throat.”—Nicole Knepper, author of Moms Who Drink And Swear
