CLASS MOM: A NOVEL (Henry Holt and Co.) Laurie Gelman’s debut novel Class Mom: A Novel is a clever take on a year in the life of kindergarten class mom, Jen Dixon. Jen is not your typical Kansas City, Missouri mom or a mom in general. She already has two college-age daughters by two different men (probably musicians), and it is her second time around the class mom block with fiveyear-old Max; this time with a husband and father by her side. Though her best friend and PTA President sees her as the “wisest” candidate for the job (or oldest), not all of the other parents agree. Class Mom: A Novel will be available August 1st wherever books are sold.• MORE DINE, PARTY, PLAY INFO Go to www.Reveel.it and snap a photo
