Amanda's husband has run off with a young thing named Tiffany, and everyone in this tony Atlanta suburb knows about it. Former friends avoid eye contact, thus rendering her son's baseball games excruciating, especially since Amanda, along with two other women considered pariahs, is relegated to helping out at the concession stands. Amanda finds a new kind of friendship with these two women, especially when she discovers that her husband has left her virtually penniless. What can a woman whose only skills are cooking, cleaning, and carpooling do to support her family? The three brainstorm and come up with the idea of a housecleaning service. Since her clientele are her snooty neighbors, Amanda dons a disguise, and, curiously, her alter ego has the confidence she lacks. Truly a treat to devour in one sitting, Wax's story of a woman's transformation from dependence to dominance is a hugely entertaining study in self-empowerment. Maria Hatton
