In the eagerly anticipated follow-up to Laurie Gelman’s "irreverent and hilarious" (The New York Post) hit Class Mom, brash, lovable Jen Dixon is back with a new class and her work cut out for her
If you’ve ever been a room parent or school volunteer, Jen Dixon is your hero. She says what every class mom is really thinking, whether in her notoriously frank emails or standup-worthy interactions with the micromanaging PTA President and the gamut of difficult parents. Luckily, she has the charm and wit to get away with it—most of the time. Jen is sassier than ever but dealing with a whole new set of challenges, in the world of parental politics and at home.
She’s been roped into room-parenting yet again, for her son Max’s third grade class, but as her husband buries himself in work, her older daughters navigate adulthood, and Jen’s own aging parents start to need some parenting themselves, Jen gets pulled in more directions than any one mom, or superhero, can handle.
Refreshingly down-to-earth and brimming with warmth, Dixon’s next chapter will keep you turning the pages to find out what’s really going on under the veneer of polite parent interactions, and have you laughing along with her the whole way.

Great book! This is the sequel to Class Mom. Jen is still hilarious. Max is now in 3rd grade. Jen has her hands full as class mom again and now she has been volunteered to organize the 5th grade safety patrol program. She has a busy life with her adult daughters, her parents, and a husband who wants to expand his business. The class emails will have you laughing out loud. I look forward to more from Laurie Gelman.
I loved Class Mom and this book did not disappoint! Rejoining these characters and their crazy lives was so much fun. Laurie Gelman's writing is so real and so funny at the same time. I feel like Jennifer is my friend and I would love it if she was emailing me as class mom for my kids school events. A definite fun beach read, or anywhere read!!
