You’ve Been Volunteered

You've Been Volunteered: A Class Mom Novel by [Gelman, Laurie]

4 out of 5 stars

She’s baaaaccckk! Jen Dixon, the witty, sarcastic mom of Class Mom, is back for another year of school and the funniest newsletters ever! I only wish I had met a mom like her when my kids were in school. I would have been her best friend. Her newsletters are hilarious. The whole book is hilarious, just like the last one. Of course, she has some different issues this go-round. She has been put in charge of the fifth grade crosswalk safety group. (Wouldn’t we all say oh yay?) Max is hanging around with a kid who brings delightful little trinkets to school. Her daughters are more silent about what’s going on in their respective lives. Something is up with her parents and her husband wants to franchise the company. It all adds up to plenty of laughs and a lot of good fun.

If you are looking for total escapism,  this is the book for you. If you haven’t read the first book, Class Mom, you really need to. You are going to laugh and see yourself in a lot of it. If you cannot laugh at yourself in mother mode, you are going to lose it. I look forward to more in the series. Please Laurie Gelman?

The review is my opinion and I thank Netgalley and Henry Holt for a copy of this delightful book.
