NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Trading in your Metro Card for a minivan can be tough -- especially if you're used to living in the city that never sleeps.

But moving to the suburbs isn't as bad as it seems. Just ask Tracy Beckerman.

Her book, 'Lost in Suburbia,' is what she calls a "momoir" about moving to the 'burbs.

"It's been an interesting transition, it's fine,  I think I'm still a little bit lost in suburbia," she said. "I definitely had a little bit of trouble getting used to things when I first got there."

"It's a big change, it was going from a big job to just being a home mom and going from the city and all the excitement of the city to being in the suburbs where you get chased by woodchucks," she said.

In the book , she speaks of her struggles and her adjustment to the new life.
