Turns out that I enjoyed it thoroughly and actually am sorry that it ended. It's true that there are references to music and bands of which I had no clue and various sexual activities going on (my memory fails me ) but it was funny, interesting and held my attention throughout. Daphne Lee-Lee is my daughter with a twist. I was intrigued by the story and entertained by an almost stand-up comedy intensity throughout the book yet there were real elements of a mystery and some real characters involved. And there was a real "surprise ending". I wonder what Daphne Lee-Lee and her band will be up to next?
I was drawn to this book because I am a teacher and -- let's face it -- sometimes we teachers would like to murder the PTA, metaphorically speaking. I was not expecting a bomb to go off at a PTA meeting. Neither, apparently, was Daphne Lee-Lee, who is the one being accused of the murder.
So, Ms. Lee-Lee finds herself as the #1 suspect of a mass murder. Even with a good-natured lawyer and a hot police detective on her side, she basically has to do the investigation on her own. Along the way, she makes plenty of tasteless jokes about the bombing, lets her libido run wild in the presence of the handsome police detective, and gets into frequent arguments with her mother.
In spite of the sheer ridiculousness of the whole thing, I still enjoyed it. I can't put my finger on exactly why. It's just... a fun book to read. As maddeningly vague as that might sound, it's really the only way I can put it. Daphne is a terrible mother, her kids are nothing like actual children, and her mother is a nut case, but I still found myself caring about what happened to them. It's a fun book. Like a cupcake for your brain. Nothing really nutritious there, but it tastes good anyway.
I would recommend this book to women that love chick flicks with a side of mystery.
I enjoyed "I Murdered the PTA" from a woman's point of view. But the man in our house also read it in one sitting. At one point, he thought he could predict the outcome. WRONG! Wendy cleverly outwitted this reader.
Would I recommend this book? Absolutely. It's an unexpected treat.
