    I thought this book would be a witty take on wealthy Manhattan moms and all their uber materialistic ways, but it ended up taking itself way too seriously, and wasn t funny at all Do yourself a favor and don t read this book.

    The writing is awful, the made up words are terrible Seriously, who talks like that Although after reading the acknowledgements, I guess the author does Bad editing, too many typos to count and that didn t include the words that I wasn t sure if it was bad editing or just another made up word, I chalked it up to the latter The story is okay,

    I enjoyed this, which I was skeptical about when reading some of the reviews I actually listened to it on CD to and from work, which was a great way to do it, because some of the snarky little comments and cliffhangers really made the time fly There are a lot of quirky little sayings natch for naturally, for example , which some reviewers didn t like because they don t hear people talking
