New term. New dramas. New friendships. And that's just the parents... Hilarious and entertaining, The Misadventures of a Playground Mother is perfect for fans of Fiona Gibson and Tracy Bloom. After a year of country living, Rachel is finally getting into the swing of things. Her kids are happy and content at the village school, and she's managed to navigate the choppy waters of the playground mafia. Or... so she thought. When playground mum Penelope moves herself and her kids into Rachel's home, after discovering her husband has been having an affair, Rachel knows she must ask them politely to leave. The problem is, Penelope never takes no for an answer. As Rachel deals with Penelope, she also meets new mum Melanie. Melanie is a breath of fresh air, but her arrival sends ripples of gossip through the playground. Melanie has a few secrets, and it seems she's not the only one...

As Kitty fills in the lost pieces of her family jigsaw and discovers some shocking revelations, will her countryside dream and blossoming relationship fall to pieces?

Ever had the pleasure of collecting your children from the school playground? Even if you haven't, this is a hilarious must-read. Fed up with the playground mafia at her children's school, Rachel Young is desperate for a change. With her family and various pets in tow, a picture-perfect village in the countryside beckons. There, Rachel's children will be able to keep chickens and skip through fields and she'll bid farewell to the botoxed, fake-Gucci wearing Mumzillas forever. But at the new school the mums are even worse, and before long, Rachel finds herself contending with a motley crew including Mrs High School Musical, The International Sex God and The Frisky Pensioner. While the children are practicing their sums and perfecting their reading, Rachel is learning some harsh lessons on the other side of the school gates, and ruffling plenty of feathers along the way...
