    Jen Dixon is back!!! I loved "Class Mom" so you can imagine how excited I was to get an advanced copy of "You've Been Volunteered", sequel to the first book. Thank you NetGalley, Laurie Gelman, and Henry Holt & Company for the opportunity to be one of the first ones to read and review this awesome book!

    And once again Laurie Gelman does not disappoint...I was belly laughing while reading about Jen Dixon's new adventures in being Class Mom! As I was reading the novel I kept thinking

    And once again Laurie Gelman does not disappoint...I was belly laughing while reading about Jen Dixon's new adventures in being Class Mom! As I was reading the novel I kept thinking that I wish all class mom's were so much fun...I wanted to be Jen's best friend! The writing style and the witty humor in both books reminds me a lot of Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovitch. Both author are great story tellers with an excellent sense of humor. So if you are in a need of a light, funny, quirky, and sassy book, ready "Class Mom" and " You've Been Volunteered" and you wont' be disappointed! Now, I am waiting for the third book in the series....I mean there has to be another one, right?

    Greetings nerds,

    Jen Dixon is back and as snarky as ever. With Max now in 3rd grade she’s roped into being class mom again and back at it with her sassy emails. She’s giving me great material for my current job as PTA treasurer 😉. Like her previous book, Class Mom, we have a cast of characters that feel all too familiar. Gelman even tackles some heavy topics while still keeping it light and breezy. While I didn’

She’s giving me great material for my current job as PTA treasurer 😉. Like her previous book, Class Mom, we have a cast of characters that feel all too familiar. Gelman even tackles some heavy topics while still keeping it light and breezy. While I didn’t completely fall in love with this follow-up I did enjoy it. It just wasn’t quite as fresh as Class Mom.

    Relatable and Funny I give it 3.5 stars. Rounded up for Goodreads.

    Dear Laurie Gelman,

    Thank you so, so much for writing this book. Without it, I'm not sure how I would have gotten through my stay at the hospital. It kept me laughing, giggling and nearly peeing my pants. It lifted my spirits. It was honest, funny and heartbreaking. I have never read a book like it. I look forward to your next novel.

    Best,

    Tucker A.

    4 laugh out loud, wipe the tears, don’t wet your pants stars to You’ve Been Volunteered!

    I enjoyed Laurie Gelmans first book, Class Mom. I am happy to report that there is no sophomore slump in book two! In fact, I think the author has found her stride and I enjoyed book two even more!

    In this installment, Jen Dixon is back as class mom for her sons 3rd grade class. In addition to her role, Jen has been tasked as the head of the safety patrol volunteers. Shenanigans ensue and her class emails are

    I LOVE the snark and witty writing that Laurie Gelman nails in these books. Because I was already invested in the characters I quite enjoyed reading the update on their lives. I highly recommend reading Class Mom before this. While it could work as a stand alone, I think the first book leads into You’ve Been Volunteered quite nicely. Thank you @henryholtbooks for this advance reader in exchange for my honest review.

    While I was slightly disappointed that this book wasn't as funny as the first book in the series I did enjoy it quite a bit. You've Been Volunteered should be read after

    While I was slightly disappointed that this book wasn't as funny as the first book in the series I did enjoy it quite a bit. You've Been Volunteered should be read after

    . I say this because both books follow Jen Dixon, her family, and her classroom duties (that she may or may not dislike). However, this book CAN stand on it's own if you choose to do so. Both books are light, funny, and have their own story line. Also you wouldn't necessarily feel lost because everything you need to know about the characters happen within each book. So while I do suggest reading them in order it's not an absolute must. You can enjoy this on it's own.

    You've Been Volunteered falls within the chick lit category (in my opinion). The story follows Jen Dixon as she navigates yet another year being a class mom in her son's classroom. Jen is a funny character there is no doubt about that. However, I felt like the heavier issues within this book (pregnancy, aging parents, money problems, etc.) took away from the humor. Jen still has a snarky attitude and she still gets herself into trouble with her witty emails, but she just wasn't as hilarious as she was in the first book. I really missed the humor if I am being honest!

    That being said, this is still a great book and I look forward to many more books by Laurie in the future. I hope she continues to write about Jen and her family (it will be fun to see how she navigates Hawaii).
