'A fabulous, funny debut about friendship and the perils of push parenting. Required reading for anyone who has been anywhere near the school gate.'
Packed with hilarious moments!
Helen is a hilariously witty, observational and truly brilliant storyteller. I loved this book and it will make you snort.
Helen has created a rollercoaster of a narrative on a scenario so many of us relate to, which will make you laugh, cry and cringe all at once! But with all the emotional turmoil and mind-bending plot twists, what really stands out is the women themselves - women you know, women you're friends with, women who intimidate you on the school run. The characters are so real and so relatable, the storyline is doubly moving. And I wish I'd said a whole bunch of hilarious remarks myself on the playground!
Funny and frank about competitive parenting, emotional labour and post-parenthood marriage.
Funny and heart-warming on motherhood, marriage and female friendship.
