'Funny and frank' DAWN O'PORTER
'Truly brilliant' EMMA GANNON

Two mothers. Two daughters. One school place.

Imogen and Lily are old friends - they've shared hangovers, unsuitable boyfriends and wild nights out together. But now they're mums, and their partying days are behind them.

When a place comes up at one of the best primary schools in the area, both women want it for their daughters. From faking religious beliefs to bogus break-ups, Imogen and Lily will go to any lengths to secure the perfect school for their children - and so will all the other mothers.

Will their friendship survive the strain? Will their marriages take the pressure? And when a sexy new vicar arrives on the scene, will the mothers' keep focus for long enough to keep their eyes on the prize?

A hilarious, heartwarming read, perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella and Fiona Gibson.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Funny and heart-warming on motherhood, marriage and female friendship. * SheerLuxe.com *
Funny and frank about competitive parenting, emotional labour and post-parenthood marriage. * Dawn O'Porter, author of The Cows *
Helen is a hilariously witty, observational and truly brilliant storyteller. I loved this book and it will make you snort. * Emma Gannon, author of The Multi-Hyphen Method *
Helen has created a rollercoaster of a narrative on a scenario so many of us relate to, which will make you laugh, cry and cringe all at once! But with all the emotional turmoil and mind-bending plot twists, what really stands out is the women themselves - women you know, women you're friends with, women who intimidate you on the school run. The characters are so real and so relatable, the storyline is doubly moving. And I wish I'd said a whole bunch of hilarious remarks myself on the playground! * Grace Timothy, author of Mum Face *
'A fabulous, funny debut about friendship and the perils of push parenting. Required reading for anyone who has been anywhere near the school gate.' * Tasmina Perry *
Packed with hilarious moments! * Woman magazine *
'Reassuring, packed with wry humour - this will resonate with Mums everywhere' * Woman and Home *
