Spinning off her popular QUEEN BEES AND WANNABEES, Wiseman illuminates the murky social ground on which parents of adolescent children stand. She unveils the myth of "Perfect Parent World" and points out parental types. Wiseman also aims to promote an understanding of the extra-parental adults who populate our children's world and influence their lives. Wiseman reads her own book, and her style of delivery takes a little getting used to. She sounds at once younger and bossier than you'd expect, and her tone is hard to place. But the slight distraction of Wiseman's voice wears off, and the book's truth quickly sets in; there's much to be learned here. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
