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!
Helen is a hilariously witty, observational and truly brilliant storyteller. I loved this book and it will make you snort.
Funny and frank about competitive parenting, emotional labour and post-parenthood marriage.
Funny and heart-warming on motherhood, marriage and female friendship.
'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!
