Was ready for a solid chick lit book so I thought it'd be fun to revisit it as a mom and it held up pretty well.

solid mommy chick lit nothing special, nice that it was more current and included the social media aspect of "momlymics"

It was cute but totally silly and even more out there. Unless you just loved Nan you can skip this one

This was a fun teenie booper read, but doesn't really share any of the qualities I liked about [b:The Nanny Diaries|228333|The Nanny Diaries|Emma McLaughlin|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1312032639s/228333.jpg|221139]. As a 23 year old who hadn't read about 'high school' life in ages it was a fun change of pace.
