Libby Marchant wants to give her four year old son Max a good education, so she is willing along with husband Ned to sacrifice luxuries and holidays so that they can pay for their son’s education.
When Max is accepted into the most sought after private school in their area, Manor House Prep School, Libby finds that not only is it difficult finding the school fees each term. But that it is difficult for her to fit in with the other mums “The meembies” with their rich lifestyles and snobbish ways.
The book is written in a fast pace and you really will want to read this book in one sitting. You just can not put it down. We are taken through Libby’s diary for a full year as she not only struggles to get Max through his first school year, but finds herself struggling to fit in with the other mums due to the social class that they are projecting.
This Chick Lit novel is well worth the read; it is an enjoyable and entertaining read that with its good humour and great characters will have you laughing out loud at times. I look forward to reading Amanda Egan’s next book.
