Contemporary Chick Lit
At once tender and hilarious, this captivating story
turns suburbia upside down, revealing the inner lives of
three characters who have more humor, heartache, and heat
than one PTA can hold
When a Hollywood location scout comes to Applewood, Long
Island, and announces that the local elementary school might
make the perfect backdrop for an upcoming George Clooney
movie, the PTA's decorum crumbles like a cookie from last
week's bake sale.
Enter Maddie, Ruth, and Lisa, three women who become the
glue that holds the project together... and wind up forging
a bond of friendship stronger than anyone could imagine.
A good thing, too, because each one of them is about to come
apart. Maddie Schein, an ex-lawyer trying hard to fit in and
save her marriage, gets knocked off balance by Jack Rose, an
old college friend hell-bent on seducing her. Ruth
Moss-rich, sexy, and outspoken-has more to give and less to
enjoy than most people think. Indeed, since her husband's
stroke left him embarrassingly uninhibited yet completely
impotent, she's more of a caretaker than a wife. And modest
Lisa Slotnick, a loving parent who wants nothing more than
to fade into the scenery as she tends to her children, must
deal with the humiliation of being thrust into the spotlight
by her scandalous, alcoholic mother.
When these three get together, a powerful alliance is
formed. But is it strong enough to overcome the obstacles to
getting the movie made in their town? And will their
friendship be enough to mend their hearts and homes? Join
them as they reach for the stars... and try to pull off a
Hollywood ending of their own.
