My Review: As soon as I learn Laurie Gelman has a new book out I stalk the library site daily until I can put it on hold. It took a bit but it was finally my turn. I have LOVED all three books in the series.

Class mom Jen is probably not someone I would like in real life but I love reading about her. Her snarkiness is top-notch. I sure couldn’t pull it off. Plus, her 💘 of yoga pants is a winner. I’m in that phase of life if I can wear mine, I do. To heck with what others think. Of course, I am in no way as fit as Jen. Lol.

This book has some serious tones to it (custody battle and aging parents) but it is handled with real-world experience. Bravo!

I cannot wait to see what Laurie Gelman comes up with next.

From Goodreads: Jen Dixon is class mom—again—for her son’s fifth grade year, and a class bully, spin-teacher training, and her irresistible granddaughter keep her on her toes and perpetually in yoga pants.

Jen has a lot on her plate this year in Yoga Pant Nation—from childcare duties for her daughter’s two-year-old to her determined mission to become a spin instructor. When her husband’s ex-wife shows up to her first ever class as a full-fledged teacher—and compliments her performance!—she can’t help but wonder what the catch is.

Throw in a mandate from the PTA president to raise $10,000 for the fifth graders’ new tablets and her granddaughter’s other grandmother (whom no one has ever met) visiting for Christmas, and Jen is going to need more than her regular spin class to get her through the year. But as ever, humor is her best stress relief. Her acerbic emails to the class parents and friendly spars with her daughter over how organic is organic-enough for baby food will have you laughing out loud and texting Jen’s best lines to your friends.
