In the new novel from the author of Losing Me, one woman is about to discover what happens when you take the "grand" out of "grandma." Recently widowed, Judy Schofield jumps at the chance to look after her two grandchildren for six weeks while their parents are out of the country. After all, she's already raised her own daughter-and quite successfully, if she may say so herself. But all it takes is a few days of private school functions, helicopter parents, video games, and never-ending Frozen sing-alongs for Judy to feel she's in over her head. As weeks become months, Judy feels more and more like an outsider among all the young mothers with their parenting theories du jour, especially when she gets on the wrong side of the school's snooty alpha mom. But finding a friend in another grandmother-and a man who takes her mind off all the stress-almost makes it worthwhile. She just needs to take it one incomprehensible homework assignment and one major meltdown at a time...?
