"Delightful...Hilarious, cringe-worthy, and all too relevant. I ate this book up like a box of candy; you will too." Tara Conklin, author of The Last Romantics
All's fair in love and kindergarten admissions.
At thirty-nine, Josie Bordelon's modeling career as the "it" black beauty of the '90s is far behind her. Now director of admissions at San Francisco's most sought after private school, she's chic, single, and determined to keep her seventeen-year-old daughter, Etta, from making the same mistakes she did.
But Etta has plans of her own — and their beloved matriarch, Aunt Viv, has Etta's back. If only Josie could manage Etta's future as well as she manages the shenanigans of the over-anxious, over-eager parents at school — or her best friend's attempts to coax Josie out of her sex sabbatical and back onto the dating scene.
As admissions season heats up, Josie discovers that when it comes to matters of the heart — and the office — the biggest surprises lie closest to home.
