Jen Dixon, kindergarten-class-mom-extraordinaire, fires off delightfully sarcastic emails to parents that are peppered with jokes about response times and bribes, along with normal parent-teacher conference scheduling content. Author Laurie Gelman provides a fast- paced account of a mom who is navigating other kids' allergies, a sexy teacher who generates gossip, and class parents who include an old flame and scheming moms. Gelman doesn't vary her voice much for different characters, but listeners will enjoy the story, which feels as if their favorite mom friend is regaling them with tales from her own life of mom uniforms and substitute words that are safe for kid ears. Gelman's voice is energizing, and her cadence confiding in this debut novel. A.L.C. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2017]
