|Summary, etc.:||"In the eagerly anticipated follow-up to Laurie Gelman's "irreverent and hilarious" (The New York Post) hit Class Mom, brash, lovable Jen Dixon is back with a new class and her work cut out for her. If you've ever been a room parent or school volunteer, Jen Dixon is your hero. She says what every class mom is really thinking, whether in her notoriously frank emails or standup-worthy interactions with the micromanaging PTA President and the gamut of difficult parents. Luckily, she has the charm and wit to get away with it--most of the time. Jen is sassier than ever but dealing with a whole new set of challenges, in the world of parental politics and at home. She's been roped into room-parenting yet again, for her son Max's third grade class, but as her husband buries himself in work, her older daughters navigate adulthood, and Jen's own aging parents start to need some parenting themselves, Jen gets pulled in more directions than any one mom, or superhero, can handle. Refreshingly down-to-earth and brimming with warmth, Dixon's next chapter will keep you turning the pages to find out what's really going on under the veneer of polite parent interactions, and have you laughing along with her the whole way"--|

Jen Dixon is back (after Class Mom, 2017). After a year off as class mom, she's stepped up again for Max's third grade class, and like any good leader, she suffers no fools. Her funny, sarcastic, and occasionally unintentional emails to parents make clear that they'd better keep up or she'll assign them to something. But Jen's thrown for a loop when she is volunteered to coordinate the school's crosswalk program and finds herself the primary wearer of the orange vest and stop sign. Meanwhile, one of her adult daughters is trying to repeat Jen's days as a rock star groupie in Europe, and the other keeps finding excuses to stay in town instead of returning to her home in New York. Even her husband is preoccupied, trying to find an investor for his store. While plot development is minimal, Jen's cheeky and mildly cynical worldview will delight any mom who has ever had to convince fellow parents to bring gluten-free cupcakes to the class party. Give to fans of Allison Pearson and of Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic books. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
