Worming my way through books since 1998 

The School Gate Survival Guide

The School Gate Survival Guide - Kerry Fisher All in all a lovely read. The protagonist was likeable, I loved the boyfriend-to-be and the story had a nice set-up, which seemed a bit different from the usual chick lit novel. Plus, I liked the fun stuff with the school.

However ... there were times when the plot seemed a little bit too far-fetched to me - especially the ending was a bit too deus-ex-machina. Basically the reader was led to believe that everything was going to fall apart until around page 280 - and in the last 40 pages everything suddenly righted itself. It all seemed a little bit too rushed for me.

But anyway, if you're looking for an easy read that will make you feel fuzzy inside then this is the book for you. :)
