5.0 out of 5 stars A very light and entertaining read - loved it!, 14 April 2012
This review is from: Diary of a Mummy Misfit (Kindle Edition)
Firstly, I would like to thank Amanda Egan. When I asked her if I could review one of her books, she very kindly sent me her first one. I totally enjoyed reading it from start to finish. In fact I absolutely loved it and wished it had gone on forever, although luckily there is a sequel to this book which I can't wait to read!

Libby and Ned Marchant make the big decision to forego luxuries and holidays in order to put their only child Max through a private education. But, they never expected to meet quite so many unsavoury and dislikeable people and Libby finds it extremely hard to fit in with the other mums who are rich and snobbish 'Meemies'. Luckily though, Libby and Ned strike up a true friendship with Fenella and Josh, whose little boy has also started at the school. Soon Libby and Fenella become members of the school committee and find themselves lumbered with all sorts of tasks. With Fenella by her side, Libby is able to maintain her sanity even when the credit crunch hits her and Ned.

I found this book to be a very light and entertaining read. I like the style in which it has been written and I love the various nicknames Libby and Fenella gave the parents. Some of them were absolutely hilarious! The rather 'hip' Asian neighbour was funny too. She never gave up trying to match-make Libby with her son.

Whether you have children or not this book is most definitely worth reading. But I warn you, once you start reading it you might find it hard to put down, though it is easy to combine with other books as well.
