Secret Confessions of the Applewood PTA by Ellen Meister ~ a review

Secret Confessions of the Applewood PTANothing bonds women quicker than a common enemy.

A film crew’s interest in using the local elementary school as set for the newest George Clooney movie ignites the imagination and brings out the claws of the PTA moms, but more than their fantasies are at stake when they offer to build a much needed stadium for the school as part of the movie set.

Four women with nothing obvious in common join forces to ensure the project moves forward, learning much about each other in the process. Don’t judge a book by its cover, the grass is not always greener, those who live in glass houses… all the common cliches apply – but still delivers a nice blend of humor and tears as they fight to bring the movie to their school, and to support each other through difficult personal struggles.

The story moved fairly slowly through the first several chapters, but gained speed quickly and finished with both predictable and unexpected conclusions. I enjoyed reading it and will keep it on the shelf – this is one I will likely re-read in the future.
