This is laugh-aloud chick-lit that will have you hooked from the opening scene.In this world of Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Bulgari, our heroine, Mim, has to do battle with the Car Park Mafia and the Mothers Superior as she drops her children off at the most prestigious school in Melbourne. But in between keeping up with the Joneses - or, in this case, the Mason-Jacksons - cracks are starting to show in Mim's perfect life, as money gets tighter and her husband works ever longer hours. If her two best friends have similar problems, Mim would never know - the Gucci Mamas are far too busy choosing their outfits for the races and having manicures to notice each other's troubles. Something's got to give, and it will take a catastrophic, life-changing event to bring Mim to her senses. But will it be too late?

Just Okay, Sorry.

The book seemed to just drag along. There were so many mixed characters with those strong Endlish accents and the narrator seemed to mummble just a bit much for my taste, that I couldn't tell one character from the other. Sorry, I know it has the upper crust society that I like to read about but you can skip this particular one.

Not worth the cost

Very shallow, leaves you hoping you will never be rich and self absorbed
