  • An amusing story

    I found Laurie Gelman's previous book, "Class Mom", very entertaining, and "You've Been Volunteered", a follow-up to that first book is just as engaging. Jennifer, mother to elementary school student Max, is a volunteer at Max's school and "You've Been Volunteered" is about her experiences as a class mom. Anyone who has volunteered at their children's (or grandchildren's) school will relate to Jennifer's experiences. A very amusing read!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Funny!

    Just as funny as Class Mom! I would highly recommend both of these books if you like something light and funny! Laurie Gelman is the Class Mom every kid would be mortified to have!

  • Fabulously Entertaining!

    Oh, this is soooo funny! I defy anyone not to laugh. As the first 'real' book I've read for a while, I found myself wondering why the pages didn't turn each time I touched the page (yes, you can laugh) but I did manage to get used to doing it manually after a fashion! Technology, eh? Jen Dixon has been 'volunteered' - and not for the first time - as Class Mom. Whilst most of us filter what we think before we either say it or type it, Jen just goes straight ahead and, boy, did it make me giggle! With a family to care for she already has a lot on her plate; two teenage daughters, a young son, a husband trying to expand his business and parents who aren't as young as they once were, Jen doesn't really have the time to spare that Class Mom involves. However, she's been volunteered so she just gets on with it! Class Mom is a new concept for those of us in the UK; when my children were young I was involved in the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) at their school, and it wasn't exactly overflowing with willing helpers. To be coerced into something similar would have been my worst nightmare, and Class Mom seems to be so much more hands on. Trust me, PTA was never as much fun as this! This is a very entertaining novel, full of humour and fun situations mixed in with the usual high anxiety which all mothers go through whilst being plunged into dealing with those who each have their own issues. Throw into the mix those who are blessed with the knowledge that they know best and can tell everyone else how to carry out their assigned tasks and you're beginning to get the picture; there's always some know-it-all looking over your shoulder, even when the tasks you're carrying out are (well, supposedly) voluntary!  Laurie Gelman has created a terrific novel, beautifully paced well-written - an absolute pleasure to read! I would suggest reading her first novel, Class Mom, first as it can only double your enjoyment! A fabulous novel and well worth the five stars I'm more than happy to give it.

    Thanks for your feedback!
