Alright, buckle up and get ready to listen to a wild ride. We've got Abbi Waxman, the master of irreverent and thoughtful storytelling, at the helm of this audiobook. And let me tell you, it's a doozy.
In this hilarious and poignant novel, Waxman takes us into the lives of four families and their not-so-ordinary neighborhood carpool. But hold on tight, because things are about to get messy. We're talking repressed hopes and dreams, unexpected moments of joy, and, oh yeah, someone getting their groove on with a man who definitely ain't her husband. Yeah, you heard that right, folks.
Frances Bloom, our trusty carpool mom extraordinaire, often finds herself privy to her neighbors' private lives. She's caught her cousin hiding her baby fever from her oblivious husband, discovered that Bill Horton's wife has mysteriously vanished, and now this bombshell revelation. Anne Porter, bless her heart, has been getting naughty behind her husband's back, and Frances, well, she's seen it all.
But Frances is no drama queen. Nope, she plans to stay in her own lane, minding her own business. Easier said than done, my friends. Because Anne's husband kicks her to the curb a few days later, and suddenly Frances finds herself in the thick of it. The affair's aftershocks reverberate through the carpool families, shaking their foundations and forcing Frances to navigate a treacherous moral minefield.
So, if you're in the mood for a rollercoaster of emotions, with equal parts laughter and tears, this audiobook is for you. Abbi Waxman's razor-sharp wit combined with the captivating narration of Saskia Maarleveld will keep you hooked for a whopping ten hours and zero minutes. But, fair warning, this one's got a rating of 2.8 out of 5, so buckle up and prepare for the unexpected. It's gonna be one wild ride.
