Great cover, huh? Well, in this case you CAN judge a book by its cover.
See, I got the opportunity to read Confessions of a PTA Mafia Mom, and I’m here to tell you it’s a great read. Even better that I got to read it on my phone’s Kindle app (too cool), but the book itself is a delightfully crazy roller coaster ride of one women’s trials with the PTA.
Elaine has hit the brick wall of a midlife crises. She’s depressed and every other part of her life is starting to suffer. She doesn’t care about her appearance, her children consider her an embarrassment, and her husband has been treating her like furniture. But all this changes when she gets sucked into the Herschel Grammar School PTA. Run by Suni Calverson, a woman drunk off what little power she has as PTA president. But there’s more going on than school dress code and bake sales. There’s kick backs, payoffs, and much, much more.
I can’t say a lot or I’ll spoil the story, but trust me when I tell you, Confessions will make you laugh, cry, and cringe. You’ll want to trade places with Elaine all the while glad she’s the one who joined the crazy PTA while your group is normal. Or is it…
I promise, you’ll never look at the PTA the same way again!
And once you’ve read it, stop by and tell Elsie how much you liked it–
