A Day That Changed Everything Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Amy Piper is a loser. She’s lost her confidence, her mojo and her way.
But one thing she has never lost is her total love for her 13-year-old son, Joey, and for his sake she knows it’s time for a change. But first she has to be brave enough to leave the house....
What she needs are friends and an adventure. And when she joins a running group of women who call themselves the Larks, she finds both. Not to mention their inspiring (and rather handsome) coach, Nathan.
Once upon a time Amy was a winner - at life, at sport and in love. Now, with every ounce of strength she has left, she is determined to reclaim the life she had, for herself and for Joey. And who knows, she might just be a winner again - at life, sport and love, if she looks in the right places....
Uplifting, funny and unforgettable, Beth Moran returns with a joyous tale of friendship, love and facing your fears.

It is also a book that will bring so much to you, a book full of compassion, hope, empathy, friendship, and love, it is a story of second changes about giving yourself that time out to recover what you lost during dose hard times we all have in our daily lives.
Amy lost so much in her life, she is feeling tired to have all these issues controlling her freedom and happiness, she feels paralyzed and even angry with herself that she is not able to be near her son in the most important moments in his life.. she really wants to change this situation and finally take charge of her feelings and illnesses that are causing her to be that lonely and secluded. but it is not an easy task, she will have to rely on other people and break many of her rules to be able to finally move on even if in the process her heart and soul will hurt but shine at the same time.
This was a very beautiful story about second chances and friendship, I really enjoy the great support Amy had, the great friendships she built and the loveling relationship she had with her son Joey. he was everything to her, he was the real reason for her to finally take many steps that before were so paralyzing but now looks the only way to show him all her support.
Great secondary characters, they really brought so much to the story, more depth and even more happiness to Amy's life, I laugh so much with their shenanigans and cry so much with their problems, and stories that made us more aware how we often assume beside asking and helping others.
What I really love about How Not To Be A Loser, it is the message, the love, the friendship between The Larks, no matter how many different stories and backgrounds they have or the past stories they had been carrying around at the end the empathy and sensibility of these women win every single time.
My only observation about the book is that I had a hard time identifying the dialogs it took me time to figure the flowing of the book but other than that it was great, amazing and super recommended!!
The novel opens with the protagonist giving a tongue-in-cheek description of what her life has become, capped by an amusing incident where she can't cast aspersions on her son's fear of spiders when she can't even look outside an open door. The author does an excellent job of giving hints of what has happened in the past - information that trickles out in bits as the story goes on. She does the same with what is to come, and it's not quite certain until the end just how things will turn out. A thoroughly enjoyable read with many light moments, while drawing the reader into the world of someone with agoraphobia.
This was a book of feels where determination, second chances, and acceptance were teh crux of the story. A step which seemed so easy to others was a monumental task for Amy, and I loved how the author portrayed her. She was never a loser in my eyes, and a winner she proved to the whole world.
Fourteen years later, Amy's priorities all revolve around her 13-year-old son, Joey. She wants him to have a happy life and to be proud of her. But how can he be proud of her when she cannot attend parents' meetings, take him to swimming practice or be involved at all in his life, outside the comfort of their home?
Amy is now an agoraphobic, battling anxiety disorders. She has not been able to leave her house in several years. So in order to be a better mother for Joey, Amy decides to put a plan into action and so the How Not to Be a Loser plan commences.
This book takes you on a journey with Amy, who eventually does get out of the house and meets Nathan, who encourages her to join a running group. (It doesn't hurt that he is incredibly hot.) It will not only make you want to put on your trainers and go for a run, but it will also have you root for Amy till the very end.
*I received this ARC from the publisher in return for an honest review.
Unique story of how an Anxiety Disorder & Agoraphobia trapped one woman inside her home, inside herself, & the steps she took to break out, with the help of new friends.

I was really pleased to see a book about mental health that is treated so sensitively and with such gentle humour. Amy's inspirational speech at the end left me covered in goosebumps!
This is a thoughtful, intelligent, inspirational read and I highly recommend it.
Deals beautifully with the issues of anxiety and has a great balance of all emotions throughout the book. Beautifully written book and love the characters. It also shows that even people who on the outside are in control, fit and healthy can have insecurities and anxieties.
Loved it and will now have to read all of Beth’s other books now. In fact I’ve already started on “Making Marion”😂⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Mental health issues had changed Amy’s life and this story showed the way she overcame them for the sake of her teenage son and for herself !
This book was beautifully written, funny and a real gem. I would recommend this book to anyone
Thank you to Netgalley, Boldwood Books and Beth Moran for letting me read this book in exchange for an honest review.
