of Holly Banks Full of Angst arrived and when I started reading it, I immediately knew it was just what I needed Holly is beautifully imperfect and filled with the sort of hysterical hijinks that just made me forget my worries and relax for awhile This book truly had me laughing out loud at every turn I did a mix of audio and physical book this t Do you ever think that a book was just simply meant for you to read when you did I had been having a really stressful few weeks at work when my copy of Holly Banks Full of Angst arrived and when I started reading it, I immediately knew it was just what I needed Holly is beautifully imperfect and filled with the sort of hysterical hijinks that just made me forget my worries and relax for awhile This book truly had me laughing out loud at every turn I did a mix of audio and physical book this time, and the audio narrator was so perfect, that even when I switched to the physical book I could picture the tone she would use for each character in my head Holly Banks is a mother who tries so hard to fit into the life that she can t quite achieve, and with spectacularly funny failures at every attempt, she warmed her way into my heart.The house in the Village of Primm was not cheap, and Holly soon realizes that buying at the top of their finances will have a price Namely, that it is not enough to live in the Village of Primm in order to belong, there are a lot of expectations From the way she decorates her house and porch she can t live up to the expert decorator and mom extraordinaire who lived their prior to her, and the other residents make sure she knows it to the way she dresses pajamas are maybe not the best thing to wear out of the house, even if you think you won t be seen , Holly is wonderfully imperfect And then Holly finds out that she has to not only be on the PTA at her daughter s school, she needs to serve as the PTA secretary to the intimidating and perfect Mary Margaret St James Mary Margaret is probably the best character in the book to me well, besides Holly She is a real piece of work Polite, bubbly, and a bit mean spirited if you are Holly, Mary Margaret makes sure to point out that Holly volunteering to bring the napkins is the worst sort of volunteering everyone knows those napkin moms.Holly can t worry, though, about her pig pajamas that everyone saw, or the 14 cherry pies she offered to bake, or the school bus she hit in front of all the kids and parents, because she has bigger problems Her husband may be having an affair She saw him in Wendy s with his attractive boss, after all, laughing and laughing And she also wonders quite poignantly why it is that the female parent has to be the one giving up their career and interests, serving on the PTA, volunteering to bake for the school, and not getting to have a life outside of their child and husband This theme was powerful, through all of the hijinks and funny scenes, the comment on the role women are forced to play in the home resonated.And finally, there is a bit of a mystery going on I won t spoil it, but let s just say the Village of Primm is about to realize how fragile their perfect, privileged lives are Thank you to
