Overview

Teaching Sunday school at her brother's church in the Bay area was supposed to help former champion athlete Esther "Essie" Walker understand boys -- the better to raise her newborn son as a stellar example of manhood. Fat chance! Enter the eight-year-old male psyche: awful jokes, disrespectful behavior and general mayhem. Essie, the queen of control, finds herself in a brand-new world of chaos.

The pressure builds on all fronts -- Sunday school class, husband's job search, church dramatic pageant, aging parents, finances -- until Queen Esther has one royal meltdown. God, it seems, has makeover plans for Essie's competitive nature. Her characteristic control is in very short supply as she gains a better understanding of the nature of imperfection, the value of motherhood and the virtues of a messy but connected life.

Allie pleiter is the author of Romantic Times Top pick (4 1/2 stars) Bad Heiress Day for Steeple Hill Cafe. She lives with her husband and two children in Villa park, Illinois.

This is a very funny book. It leaves me with a smile on my face each time I think about it. If you've ever worked with children, especially boys, or have misjudged someone, this book is for you! Once you begin reading, you won't be able to put it down--except maybe to get a tissue for your tearful laugh.
