Goodreads:  Welcome to Forest River, New York, where perfection is a requirement. The Lululemon-clad moms are perfectly toned, expertly highlighted, and magnificently manicured. The women spend their days practicing Pilates, shopping for shoes, and doing everything in their power to ensure their children never experience a difficult day.

PTA president, Jackie Martin, is the envy off the mothers. She has a loyal and handsome husband, she host's elaborate parties, and her eldest daughter, Hayley, is the most popular child in the fifth grade. Her life appears flawless, but is life ever what it seems to be?

After receiving a painful blow, when Hayley was in kindergarten, Jackie clawed her way into PTA power. She lived her life by the adage, "Proper planning prevents poor performance." Her attention to detail (okay fine – her control freak nature) served her well until she experiences the ultimate betrayal.

Angry and hurt, old emotional wounds are ripped open as Jackie realizes she doesn't know who she can trust. Jackie must reevaluate her life, her friendships, and the choices she has made. Will she finally let her guard down and show the world the real Jackie Martin?

Kritters Thoughts:  Set in the same suburb of New York and in the same elementary school with the same PTA moms, this is book three in a series that I highly suggest starting at book one before moving forward.  

This book is different from the first two as it goes back in time to when these women first meet as moms of kindergartners.  This book gives the reader the back ground information that I believe would have been helpful when reading the previous books.  Going back in time and learning how these personalities all came together was so enlightening and would have given so much color to the previous books, but I was thankful to have one more book after this one to read with this knowledge.  

This book is the rise of Jackie, the PTA president and how she came in like a tornado and shook things up.  To see how she became a part of the PTA and the things she was willing to do just made me thankful that I do not have to deal with this type of politics in my life!  Reading these books reminded me of reading about girls in middle school and the rivalries and back stabbing - goodness gracious!      

Rating: absolutely enjoyed it and want a sequel
