was kind of disappointed and a ittle bewildered This is a story aboutkind of disappointed and a The Boleyn King (The Boleyn Trilogy, little bewildered This is a story about mother Lydia who has toearn to maintain relationships with her friends when said friend s children begin to mistreat her daughter at school I was intrigued by this dynamic mostly the reality that somehow all women at heart still want to be popular no matter what their age The mothers in the story become too wrapped up in their daughter s social status something I have experienced all too vividly in my own Rascal life This dilemna in my opinion was the real strength and heart of the novelUnfortunately about 34 of the way through the book the author dropped this storyline almost completely and instead focused on new issues that appeared to come out ofeft field to me Where did my interesting novel goIn the end it feels as though neither storyline is really resolved and I was Another Day of Life left wanting One other problem for me was the very honest and yet often harsh descriptions of the secondary characters personality flaws and the almost detached assessment of marriage I couldn t tell if the author wasetting off steam about her own ife or whatIn the end I would probably pick up another book by this author and cross my fingers for a focused storyline I found this book
to be very engaging and well written As the mother of two girls who are not yet school aged I foundbe very engaging and well written As the mother of two girls who are not yet school aged I found sound advice in the author s message to not get too wrapped up in the petty school aged drama and to focus on the marriage that will be eft when the kids are out of school Some of the author s descriptions were very on point This was than chick Narcissus in Chains (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, lit in my opinion and the end resolved most of the issues she covered to my satisfaction Loved this book A must read for any mother of a preteenteenager or middle school teacher Amazing.

Hadn t heard of this book therefore no expectations just found it on the new books in at the ibrary Surprisingly I was so impressed with Seidel s fictional story which read as a sociological study of girls and mothers Sure there were stereotypes but that was so affirming in recognizing how to cope with similar personalities and situations as the mother of a girl Seidel s descriptions observations were stinging humorous and poignant in a non sappy way I will recommend this book to friends As a parent of school aged children with friends I could really relate to the struggles of the main character She tries to do whatever she thinks is best for them by getting them into the right schools onto the right sports teams and getting them together with the right friends The main character was given a good balance between getting too involved in her children s Friend Foe lives andetting them make decisions for themselves It is such a power struggle for parent s today regarding parenting and this book was surprisingly entertaining It was a delightful novel to read I am so glad I came across this book It was humorous and clever Four suburban soccer moms and their middle school aged daughters struggle to Figure Out Where They out where they as their friendships fall apart over due to significant shifts in each of their status power and popularity I The Longevity Diet live in the sameocation as the characters in this book and when I read the book I had two middle school aged daughters enrolled in a ocal Independent School My kids played sports against many of the schools mentioned in this book Relational aggression seems to invoke emotional and academic difficulties for girls in middle school than any other age group There are a number of popular press articles books
and movies that have focused on the issue of relational aggression in girlsmovies that have focused on the issue of relational aggression in girls Bees and Wannabes and Odd Girl Out The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls being the most notable I was really hoping the plot of this novel would realistically depict what happens to girls during these changes in middle school as well as how things change afterwards Unfortunately this books wraps everything up in the most perfect pristine Lydia Meadows a former awyer turned full time mother is startled to discover that her daughter Erin is one of the popular girls a tight foursome whose mothers are also great friends Lydia has always thought of popular girls as ambitious ittle manipulators.
