Critical Praise

"Two former Manhattan nannies blow the lid off of the private child-care industry with a hilarious debut that pulls no punches as it recounts the travails of Nan, a hip Mary Poppins looking for a job to fit around her child-development classes at NYU...Required reading for parents and the women who they hire to do their parenting...thoroughly appealing..."

——Publishers Weekly

"First-novelists and former nannies McLaughlin and Kraus get the details right"

——Kirkus Reviews

"This is an inside story. The authors have both worked as nannies for well-to-do New Yorkers, and here they fictionalize their experiences to protect the innocent--and the guilty!"

——Library Journal

"...the wicked fascination of this novel lies in all the wacky tidbits about life in the social stratosphere....very funny..."

——New York Magazine
