Summary

Two mothers. Two daughters. One school place.  

Imogen and Lily are old friends - they've shared hangovers, unsuitable boyfriends and wild nights out together. But now they're mums, and their partying days are behind them.   

When a place comes up at one of the best primary schools in the area, both women want it for their daughters. From faking religious beliefs to bogus breakups, Imogen and Lily will go to any lengths to secure the perfect school for their children - and so will all the other mothers.  

Will their friendship survive the strain? Will their marriages take the pressure? And when a sexy new vicar arrives on the scene, will the mothers keep focus for long enough to keep their eyes on the prize? 

A hilarious, heartwarming listen, perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella and Fiona Gibson.

Fresh and funny

A very fun read. Characters were relatable and London life/ the modern school placement system and friendship evolving into adulthood is captured nicely. Great narration too.
