Class Mom Overview

Laurie Gelman's debut novel, Class Mom, is a quick and breezy read that follows Jen Dixon, a suburban mother who has been "volunteered" to be the official class mom for her son Max's kindergarten class. As the mother of two older daughters, who are both in college, Jen approaches her duties with what some fellow parents view as a fun sassiness -- and what others view as flippant rudeness. While the school year goes on, different and surprising alliances form and dissolve between the moms, dads, and the mysterious teacher, Miss Ward.
