BOOK REVIEW

   ADMISSIONS - NANCY LIEBERMAN

The Tuesday after Labor Day was always a very interesting day in Manhattan.  It marked the beginning of the private school admissions process.  This is when the families with "money" would do almost anything to get their child into the school of their choice.

Helen Drager, mother of Zoe, figured her child would have no problem being accepted in the school of her choice.  After all, her best friend Sara is an admissions officer at the  K-8  school Zoe currently attends.

However, Sara's admissions process is running into trouble mainly because of Pamela, the Head of the School.  Seems that Pamela is always catering to the needs of celebrities and wealthy donors.

To make matters more interesting, Helen's husband is a TV Food Network producer.  Will he create a show for the Headmistress to give Zoe the chance to get into the school of her choice?

What else will the Drager's have to do for Zoe to get accepted into the school of her choice?

This one will really make you laugh.  The characters are really believable and you can just imagine them interacting in this admission competition.  When you are reading this book, things don't seem too far from what probably does happen in the real world.  All in all, this is a clever book and the author gives us a humorous look at what "probably" happens behind the scenes in the private school admissions process.  You should read this one.  We all need a laugh now and then!
