Product Description

Product Description

An over-the-top fun yet poignant story about mother-daughter relationships and the world of school volunteerism. You'll laugh, cry and phone a friend about Mom of the Year--the debut title from the new genre of fiction, Script Lit, featuring eBook novellas adapted from Hollywood's best unproduced screenplays.

Janie Parker rules the school at Parkside Elementary, though she’s not even a student. She’s a volunteer room mother, tirelessly pouring her blood, sweat and tears into every perfect detail of every party and project for her daughter’s class. And she does it all for…GASP…the glory. Her over-the-top antics alienate her daughter, Kelsey, who is nothing like her mother.

So when Janie’s husband, Greg, announces the family must relocate to Houston in the middle of the school year, Kelsey sees the opportunity to start over. Janie, however, sees the end of her legacy as the most fabulous, glorified volunteer in the history of public schools. As if that isn't horrifying enough, the family’s move to Houston forces Janie to live in the same town as her own mother, Helen, whom she despises.

When they arrive at Kelsey’s new school, Bear Branch Elementary, Janie discovers some silver lining – their new school district annually crowns a “Mom of the Year.” Janie soon meets her match in Lanette Middleton, the class room mother and reigning Mom of the Year. Lanette makes it clear there is no room for Janie at Bear Branch. After one too many insults, Janie fights back...and the competition is ON!

4.0 out of 5 stars New genre of fiction- Script Lit 31 Dec 2013
By Cheryl M-M TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There are times when your parent just doesn't realize how their behaviour in public or in general can impact your life, as a child or even as an adult.Especially when your mother comes out with quips like 'That thing looked like an anteater' when talking about the crown jewels of some poor unsuspecting male. Then again that probably is the kind of thing my mother would say.'Sigh'
I feel for Janie, who has become the over-compensating mother, because her own was never present during her school years. The type that feels they have to attend every performance, every parent's evening, be head of the PTA and be a shadow to their child during their time at school.
In this case Janie is so worried about being the most awesome parent that she forgets to be a mother to her child. She ends up doing the same thing to her child, as her own mother once did and has no idea she is doing it.
The story is fresh, comes with a lot of difficult home truths and filled with characters I am sure we can all identify with. It is food for thought wrapped in the guise of a quick fun read.
I received a copy of this book courtesy of the author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mom of the Year 1 Dec 2013
By angelpeaches - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mom of the Year was a fun book to read. It's an anytown, USA, PTA, or Classroom Mom story with characters that you either know or have met, or maybe you are one of them in real life. It's one of those books that you don't want to put down until the end because you can't wait to see what happens next. If you like cheering for the underdog in life, you will enjoy this book.

As a Texas mom who is now living in Malaysia, I loved reading about the classmom antics. It was also great at making you think about your motive for doing something for others. Thank you Denise for a great read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Non-Stop fun of the year! 23 May 2013
By Jim Stansberry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a simply brilliant look at family, school life -- and the moms behind it.

I began reading and was immediately caught up in the characters and hysterical situations. The narrative moves along quickly and you can't wait to see what happens next.

If you are a mom, dad or someone that likes to laugh out loud while enjoying a good read -- then "Mom of the Year" is the perfect pick.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good light read 7 Mar 2014
By Ramanda M Sharrock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a good read but in my time as a mother I have actually seen mothers like this. The book makes light of those moms that most of us can never keep up with or really have no desire to!
