I really liked the sound of The Pissed-Off Parents Club after reading a few reviews on here, so when I saw it in The Works as part of their 3 for £5 deal it seemed rude not to buy it - ok yes I am meant to still be on my book buying hiatus, but come on - 3 books for a fiver!!! The Pissed Off Parents Club is the debut novel by Mink Elliott, former deputy Editor of Practical Parenting. The book is about Roxy Carmichael, a first time mum approaching 40.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I have not read/seen a 'mums lit' book before that does not pour treacle over the mother/child relationship, so this was a real treat. The characters were believable and the interplay between them was very funny - I did laugh out loud on several occasions and was sorry when I had finished it! I would recommend this to anyone who needs a good laugh - especially parents! Has this author written any other books as I can't find any?
