Children's LiteratureTaking care of an 8-year-old kid genius, Emma, is not everything it is cracked up to be. The pay might be the only good thing in the web of stories Adrienne, the nanny, is involved in—that is, if she does not get fired like all the previous nannies. Adrienne is a temporary nanny until the British nanny makes her appearance. Forced to stay much longer than she expected, Adrienne is more of a permanent nanny. Emma's older half-sister, Cameron, is a high-maintenance, lying, stealing, selfish teenager. Cameron convinces Adrienne that they are friends by lavishing her with beautiful clothes, exciting adventures, and other rich luxuries. How will Adrienne learn the truth? Perhaps her wake-up call will come when she almost gets dumped by her man, when her best friends realize she is snooty, when she gets framed, fired, or forgotten. This novel has great themes that touch on subjects such as friendship, money, responsibility, and reality. 2005, Parachute Publishing, Ages 14 up.
