Four of a Kind by Valerie Frankel

Clear rating

When four unlikely women are put on a private school's parent diversity committee, each mother wonders what they have to offer. It isn't until the women start playing poker instead of creating meeting agendas that they start to reveal their true selves and discover that they might actually like each other. Each woman has their own issue to deal with - surly daughters, affairs, demanding families and overwhelming careers. The book follows each woman through their journeys, but the core of the book is how the women develop friendships with each other and with the other parents at the school. Frankel gets to the heart of female relationships, but it never feels forced. It's a surprisingly good read with engaging but delightfully flawed characters.
