Review: Other People's Houses

Other People's Houses Other People's Houses by Abbi Waxman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When your neighborhood is filled with family members, kids, kids' friends and casual acquaintances, the everyday ordinary can sometimes rise to the level of high-quality gossip. That's what it's like for Frances and her family living in their neighborhood. Though Frances is just trying to get through life the best she can and raise her children, it's all of the people around her that both entertain and frustrate this stay at home mom.

While the book didn't have one major plotline for Frances to participate in, Frances seemed to be the reader's eyes into everyone else's problems. She also ends up helping with or providing solutions to these neighborhood uproars, simply because she's the designated school carpool. It's fun to read, even though it feels like your dropping into someone else's trunk of gossip. It's humorous and treats the life of a parent with young children as anything but glamourous, very true to life.
