In the latest book, Jen Dixon our snarky entertaining hero from Class Mom reluctantly becomes the room parent for her son Max’s third grade class. Although many of the parents/children have returned, Gelman introduces us to even more new quirky parents.
With her best friend having moved away, Jen must also deal with a new PTA President she can’t quite figure out as well as reluctantly volunteering as the new safety guard coordinator.
Meanwhile back at the home…Jen is dealing with a mouthy Max, a husband who is never home anymore, a mother who has just finished Chemo for breast cancer and a daughter who is…following a band around Europe…sound familiar?
Gelman knows just how to deal with serious issues with a light hearted spin never detracting from the importance of the subject.
And spin she does…when a new couple they meet takes them on one heck of a ride!
You can’t help but love Jen Dixon! My hope is there will be a sequel to the sequel and Max will never grow up!
