Confessions of a Prep School Mommy Handler...Review

About the book:
When Wade Rouse—a rural, public school graduate who grew up more Hee Haw than Dynasty—was hired as the director of publicity at the prestigious Tate Academy, he quickly discovered his real job was to make a few of the very pretty, very rich, very mean mommies of the elite students happy.

Enter former Tate beauty queen and sports star Katherine Isabelle Ludington—Kitsy to her friends—who went to an Ivy, married an Ivy, and made a lot of money. Now, she is Wade’s VIP volunteer and a perfectly coiffed nightmare.

In between designing Louis Vuitton–inspired reunion invitations, dressing as Ronald Reagan for Halloween, and surviving surprise Botox parties, Wade tries to tame Kitsy and her pink Lilly Pulitzer–clad posse while reclaiming his self-esteem.

Following a year in the life of the super rich and super spoiled, Confessions of a Prep School Mommy Handler is hilarious, heartbreaking, and deliciously catty.

I found it at the library. It looked entertaining. Mostly it was annoying. I don't relate to high fashion, high maintenance women. I don't run with the prep school crowd or people who have more money than sense. My world doesn't revolve around clothes and decorating.

The story is fictional, but based on true experiences. The main character is a PR person at a snooty, falooty school and the story is about the hoity, toity mothers who drive him crazy. The author is gay and so is the main male character, which shouldn't be an issue, but for me, it was. I could have done without the gay references and experiences.

Don't bother with this one.

Thanks to my library for having a copy I could, but shouldn't have borrowed!
