My incredibly talented pal Ellen Meister just got a great review for her upcoming novel, Secret Confessions of the Applewood PTA from Kirkus. Kirkus is a tough nut to crack, but they said, "Comical yet poignant read without too much melodrama."
You can read the entire review on Ellen's blog, and it gives a nice description of the book. This novel is going to be a blockbuster. And Ellen is total cupcake -- smart, pretty, talented, and as sweet and nice as they come.
