Book Review: You've Been Volunteered by Laurie Gelman

If you are looking for an outrageously funny read, then the second book in the Class Mom series by Laurie Gelman is the perfect choice.

In You've Been Volunteered, Jen Dixon not only gets roped into being class mom again, she gets "volunteered" to help with a new safety project at school. She must balance these duties while trying to keep track of what Max is up to at school with the new kid, helping her daughters navigate adulthood, dealing with her ever absent husband, and finding a way to cope with her aging parents.

Are you tired yet? I sure am.

Though I didn't read the first Class Mom novel, You've Been Volunteered was the perfect light read for me to delve into. Jen is the person who is as bold as you wish you could be. Like any busy mom, she has a ton going on, but she might just surprise herself and the reader. There are more serious storylines running through the novel, which make the Dixon family feel very real.

Gelman has created a diverse cast of characters you enjoy spending time with. I'm eager to see what they are up to next. I'm sure it will be equally as hilarious.
