If you like “Small Admissions” by Amy Poepell or “Class Mom” by Laurie Gelman you will love this novel about super mommies, private schools, & getting your worst moment plastered across the internet.
Her mommy meltdown is seen around the world!
When Quinn Barrett’s son refuses to wear his hand-crafted costume to the Little Wonders Preschool Happy Halloween Parade & Dance Party she loses it — complete with stomping, screaming, & costume-destruction galore. Not her best day. And caught on viral video. Yep, “Halloween Mom” is now internet famous.
The posting culprit: tattooed, blue-haired, west-coast transplant Daisy McGulch, out of place in the posh New England town & unable to blend with the other perfect mommies of Little Wonders Preschool.
While she couldn’t care less about organic snacks (paleo-preferred) or the winter quarters of the Little Wonders chickens, she’s not about to admit she’s the one who accidentally brought Quinn’s worst moment to the entire world—she’d be kicked out of town!
But when Quinn & Daisy find themselves unlikely cohorts in the fight for Little Wonders Parents Association supremacy, they also discover they have more in common than they expected…but the internet is forever. Can Quinn live down her new reputation? And how far will Daisy go to keep the truth from coming to light?
Hilarious, clever, & unforgettable, “Little Wonders” offers a glimpse into the high-pressure world of modern momming, with natural toys, scrutinized playdates, PTA politics, & social media gone amok.
Rorick satirically captured the “mom world” perfectly, in my opinion, when it comes to some of the moms in the area I live in. Mom’s who think they are above & beyond, & really just need to get over themselves. I enjoyed this book & took it for what it’s meant to be: entertaining. It gave me “Bad Moms” (the movie, which I LOVE) vibes in dealing with flawed parenting from both ends of the spectrum. It’s funny, but also heartfelt, insightful, & thought-provoking.
Look for “Little Wonders” on 3/17, and here are MY Little Wonders, my autistic twins!
