A Year in the Life of a Playground Mother by Christie Barlow

Release Date: 06.09.2014


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…


I've had so much fun reading this book and even if I don't have kids yet I know the playground dynamics too well thanks to my nieces.

Our heroine,Rachel,is so glad to move but she doesn't imagine that her new village is so full of lunatics that she thinks to go back to the North.

I can't wait to read the second book of the series.
