Kids driving you crazy? Join...The Pissed-Off Parents Club.
First-time mum Roxy feels perennially ticked off. She and her partner Jack have left London for a new life in the village of Riverside, with their ten-month-old daughter Joey. But their new house resembles a building site and Roxy is struggling to cope with parenthood. With no family or friends to turn to for help, Roxy sets up a club in order to meet like-minded parents, and so begins The Pissed-Off Parents Club.
Hilarious and refreshingly original, this is a story telling it like it is - for mums and dads of all descriptions.
If your maternity leave was a blissful whirlwind of shopping, newborn routines and baby yoga, then The Pi**ed-Off Parents Club won't mean much. If, however, you're one of us, oft-spotted in Tesco in a sleep-deprived daze, attracting looks of disdain over your child's contempt for quiet, you'll be rooting for the heroine, Roxy, all the way.
