Class Mom (by Laurie Gelman)

A fun and slightly Semple-ish satire of a year in the life of a kindergarten class mom.  I was slogging my way through The Idiot (see next post) and a took a break to read some of this, and accidentally finished it in a day.

Books that are explicitly trying to be funny are always tricky -- they're never quite as funny as they are trying to be, and it can get annoying. But I found this more successful than most -- probably because my husband is the room parent coordinator for our kid's school, and it is all extremely relatable.

A fun, breezy read, recommended for my fellow parents.
