Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The many readers who loved the first entry will be thrilled to revisit Nan, Grayer, and the Xs. Booklist
“As bitingly funny as its predecessor, this Nanny also makes serious points about the pitfalls of modern parenting. It does chick lit proud.” People
“Eminently readable...a surprisingly affecting portrayal of childhood hurts.” Entertainment Weekly
“Another deliciously addictive glimpse into the lives of the ultra-rich and their children.” New York Post
“A fast-moving tale...fun to read.” Associated Press
“Bennett’s narration is excellent: she draws the listener into the story, revealing the characters’ emotions and flaws and keeping the pacing brisk and entertaining.”  Publishers Weekly
“The many readers who loved the first entry will be thrilled to revisit Nan, Grayer, and the Xs.”  Booklist
“Once again, the wealthy New York crowd serves as an addictive backdrop, and the story’s contrast between shallowness and compassion is fascinating. Nanny Diaries fans will snap up this sequel.” Library Journal
“Readers will cheer at the chance to spend more time with the ever-multitasking Nan from the Nanny Diaries and her New York family! The high-society drama and eccentric characters stay interesting until the last page. And Nan’s deftly painted emotional responses force us all to think about the definition of ‘acceptable’ for individuals and society.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
