Editorial Reviews

Review

"Don’t miss this hilarious send-up of parental politics.”―People Magazine, Best New Books feature

“Gelman's debut is a literary stand-up routine, and you might as well just give in: this woman is going to get a laugh out of you.”―Kirkus Reviews

“Irreverent and hilarious” ―The New York Post

“Gelman’s debut draws a delightfully snarky character in Jen Dixon, kindergarten-class mom and purveyor of jaw-dropping but spot-on class updates…Snappy dialogue and quick pacing make this a fast and fun read…fans of Jen Lancaster and Maria Semple will love meeting Jen Dixon.” ―Booklist

“[A] funny, charming debut novel…With its appealing tone and a sweet mystery at its core, Class Mom offers up refreshingly likable characters in relatably goofy situations.”Good Housekeeping

"Jen's first-person narration is sassy yet vulnerable as she faces motherhood with panache and her midlife crisis with uncertainty. Her e-mails to the other parents will elicit cackles of glee. Class Mom provides mom-raderie to those who still feel 20 but aren't."―Shelf Awareness

Class Mom is wicked fun. I will forever have a secret smile at school drop off having read this book. Thank you, Laurie Gelman, for this well-written, deviously funny viewpoint on motherhood today."―Katie Brown, Lifestyle TV host and author

"In Class Mom, Laurie Gelman's titular character is the perfect class mom's alter ego, with wit and just enough snark to make it a really fun read."―Victoria Rose, Publisher of Us Weekly

“Laurie Gelman has put her stamp on the world of women’s fiction with her debut novel, ClassMom.” Library Journal

“Warning: Do not read Class Mom in the quiet car on the train because you will LOL! (Sorry, not sorry, fellow commuters.) Laurie Gelman’s HI-larious debut novel is a must-read for anyone with small people at home!” ―Meaghan Murphy, Executive Editor, Good Housekeeping

“Jen Dixon, a mom with two college-age daughters (been there, done that) brings zest, impatience and irreverence to her role as kindergarten mom for her 5-year-old son.”The Columbus Dispatch

"As a Mom, I so identified with the insanity and hilarity of the world of Class Mom―which is why I never took the job!”―Alexandra Wentworth, actress and New York Times bestselling author of Happily Ali After

"What fun to root for our hilariously human heroine Jen as she navigates her role as class mom exactly the way we all dream of doing it―with humor and what appears to be a serious addiction to truth serum. Finally, a free-spirited character who says the things we are all thinking but are too scared to say out loud. A total joy to read."―Caroline Rhea, comedian

Class Mom shines a bright, hilarious light on what really goes on among the parents of school-aged kids. You don’t have to be a mom to enjoy this romp, but you’ll laugh even harder if you are one. Laurie Gelman deftly gives voice to what we’re all thinking about the tricky terrain of school politics but don’t have the nerve to say out loud. Her lead, Jennifer Dixon, is uncensored, sarcastic, flawed, and fabulous and you’ll root for her on every page.” ―Linda Murray, Global Editor in Chief, BabyCenter.com
