Summary

It's back to a new school term for the kids. Their mums - Gemma and Becky - are breathing a huge sigh of relief and reaching for the gin bottle. Except for the fact that Becky appears to be accidentally a little bit pregnant....

But that's not the first shock for the parents in the playground. Over the summer, part of their beloved Redcoats Primary has burned down. The school needs to raise thousands of pounds to stay open - and Gemma and Becky have been forced on to the fund-raising committee (just to add to the millions of messages from their online parent groups).

In year that will see new babies (for Becky), new schools (for Sam) and a whole new business for Gemma, will they all keep their heads above water - and find that they're #winningatlife?

Lovely

Lovely little story that's relatable to mums with primary school children. Really enjoyed it.

I wasn’t aware this was a follow up book

Wasn’t aware that this book is a follow on from the authors last one, didn’t actually notice until I went and read her first one. It’s really easy reading and it’s actually pretty funny. I am however comparing this to the book “why mummy drinks”. Performance is very good and the voices she uses are very good but I would not say the story is as good as the “why mummy..... books”.

Personally I like this book more than the authors first one. Very easy listening!

Fucking yes!

There is so much i could say here. After following your facebook blog for so long i fell into the easy listening of this book and your previous book so well and have loved listening whilst doing all the dull tasks at home. You have made a really tough few weeks that little bit better. I have never looked forward to hoovering so much in my life so i could fall into your book and make it that bit less painful. Thank you, and please keep writing!

Not great.

Sorry I didn't like this book. loved the first one and could not stop laughing. Unfortunately this book neither made me laugh or make me want to finish the book.
