I picked up this book in the bargain rack of Chapter's and was thoroughly surprised at just how much I enjoyed it. Was definately funny (especially if you enjoy British humour) and very sad in some parts. The story is about a suburban stay-at-home mom who has lost her way and confidence. A story all mom's can relate to in one way or another.....truly couldn't put the book down.......quick and easy read.
1 star = I disliked this book so much that I couldn't stand to finish reading it, despite the fact that I'd spent five perfectly good dollars on it. I found the narrator completely unlikeable, the writing pedestrian, and the story uninteresting. Oh well!
