The Mommy Clique is a comedy-drama novel by Barbara Altamirano. When Beth and her husband Rick move back to her hometown in Connecticut to take care of her ailing mother, she hopes to make a few friends in the neighborhood and have some better memories than in her childhood. Little did she know that much like high school, she was entering the tiger's den all over again. Beth soon discovers that the suburb is ruled by a clique of thirty-something moms who spend their time maintaining their social hierarchy by playing ruthless games as dictated by the Queen Bee, Elise. To her horror, after attending a disastrous party, Beth learns that she had become what everyone wanted to avoid, The Target. Can she survive the relentless onslaught of the clique?
Imagine the hit Hollywood movie Mean Girls set in a modern suburban neighborhood with a group of thirty-something moms eager to torture the new arrival instead of high school teenage girls. You will probably end up with something like The Mommy Clique. Author Barbara Altamirano's hilarious yet riveting yarn about suburban social hierarchy perfectly demonstrates that no matter how old you are, the social dynamics of high school continue to influence your life unless you decide to grow up and stand up to the bullies. The characters are colorful, conniving, and conceited. But most of all, they are thoroughly entertaining to read. Altamirano's quick-witted dialogue and sarcastic humor keep you entertained all the way through, and I genuinely can't remember the last time I had so much fun reading a book. Highly recommend.
