    I think I saw this book first on a friends goodread feed and thought that I d enjoy a nanny book about a NYC nanny Then someone was nice enough to gift it to my kindle Really, the book wasof a nineteen year old in the big city coming of age story than a nanny tell all And it was set in the early 90s or so, not the near 2011 that it s publication date had led me to expect Once I accepted that it for what it was, I surprised myself with how much I enjoyed the book The voice of the nine I think I saw this book first on a friends goodread feed and thought that I d enjoy a nanny book about a NYC nanny Then someone was nice enough to gift it to my kindle Really, the book wasof a nineteen year old in the big city coming of age story than a nanny tell all And it was set in the early 90s or so, not the near 2011 that it s publication date had led me to expect Once I accepted that it for what it was, I surprised myself with how much I enjoyed the book The voice of the nineteen year old nanny of the title was fresh and realistic and the writing was rich enough in details to make the book enjoyable The ending was a bit too fairy tale for me, and the plot perhaps a bit too dramatic, but overall a good light read

    I admit that based on the title of this novel, I wasn t sure what it would really be about other than the obvious , or if I d really like it I freely admit that kids aren t exactly my favorite thing so a story about them doesn t always appeal to me Well, I learned that this book is about kids, but only to a certain extent it s reallyabout the lifestyle of a nanny, which I found quite interesting as it s something I didn t previously know much anything about, and the life of one I admit that based on the title of this novel, I wasn t sure what it would really be about other than the obvious , or if I d really like it I freely admit that kids aren t exactly my favorite thing so a story about them doesn t always appeal to me Well, I learned that this book is about kids, but only to a certain extent it s reallyabout the lifestyle of a nanny, which I found quite interesting as it s something I didn t previously know much anything about, and the life of one nanny in particular.It s obvious that the author has had personal experience with being a nanny in NYC, so the story definitely has a feeling of credibility It was interesting to get insight into the life of a live in nanny There were definitely some cringe worthy moments in the story regarding the disgusting pretentiousness and crassness of the upper class, and the harshness of life in the urban jungle of Manhattan There were also some heartwarming moments where the reader really gets a glimpse of how much these nannies love and become attached to the children they care for, even when the nannies and the kids are forced to endure some pretty jacked up circumstances.I really enjoyed the author s writing style it was refreshing to read realistic dialogue that was written in the same manner in which we actually think or talk Sometimes authors try to write so correctly that it actually ends up sounding very disjointed and unnatural Don t get me wrong I do love proper grammar and spelling, but sometimes I just want to read a story that flows, and I don t really care if there are some fragmented sentences thrown in there Another thing that lead to the realism of the story was how well the author stuck to the time frame, which I assume was the late 1980 s The level of detail in the story made it easy to imagine the characters living in the 80 s as they waited by the actual phone for someone to call, or a phone was busy , or they licked stamps or listened to Duran Duran.All in all, this was a quick, enjoyable read but that doesn t mean the story didn t have substance It actually had muchdepth than I expected, and although I saw one of the twists in the plot coming, the other one was a surprise and I was very pleased with the ending I think this may be this author s first novel kudos , and I ll definitely be buying any subsequent works she publishes.Oh, and onething I wonder if The Girl from Ipanema really was the first song the author heard on the radio when she arrived in NYC for her first nanny gig

    I ll caveat this review by mentioning that I ve worked with the author, and I initially picked this up as the third my friend wrote a book, I should read it title so far this year It s not a genre I typically read, and I had no idea what to expect But although I know Ms Charter, this review s honest if I hadn t thoroughly enjoyed the book, I d simply not have commented on it What makes this book an engaging read is a set of fully three dimensional, realistic characters that really feel I ll caveat this review by mentioning that I ve worked with the author, and I initially picked this up as the third my friend wrote a book, I should read it title so far this year It s not a genre I typically read, and I had no idea what to expect But although I know Ms Charter, this review s honest if I hadn t thoroughly enjoyed the book, I d simply not have commented on it What makes this book an engaging read is a set of fully three dimensional, realistic characters that really feel pulled from streets of 90 s New York The story unfolds slowly the conflict doesn t fully emerge until fairly late in the tale but you don t care, because you re quickly drawn in by both the lead character and her supporting cast You care about the characters, and you want to jump into the book and shake them when they make the kind of bad calls that 19 year old women often find themselves making I ll keep this vauge to avoid spoilers, but if the book has any flaw, it s that the wrapup is a bit fairy tale This isn t a lesson book, because while some of the supporting characters end up paying for their indiscretions or bad decisions, the turn of events towards the end of the book is, um, better than things typically work out in such situations When you read it and you SHOULD read it, it s a heckuva great read and a steal at the price imagine the book ending before the epilogue Then just imagine the epilogue is a Lord of the Rings style extended ending added in the director s cut But minor ending nitpicks aside, I have to laud the author, because for the first time in my life, I think I finally have an inkling of understanding and sympathy as to why some young women make decisions that seem to fly in the face of all good judgement You ll feel happy for the lead character, Michelle, you ll feel sad for her, and you ll wish you could talk some sense into her How often does a character feel that real

    This book is dark Unlike other nanny books you may have read it doesn t set out to trash the parents who hire au pairs and nannies but you won t like them It really exposes the problems of hiring unskilled teenagers and paying them a pittance The main character is a child of a broken home and bad parenting She is a victim waiting to happen The other nannies are away from their homes and in NYC and out of their element.The book isn t specifically set in a time but it is before 9 11 when you This book is dark Unlike other nanny books you may have read it doesn t set out to trash the parents who hire au pairs and nannies but you won t like them It really exposes the problems of hiring unskilled teenagers and paying them a pittance The main character is a child of a broken home and bad parenting She is a victim waiting to happen The other nannies are away from their homes and in NYC and out of their element.The book isn t specifically set in a time but it is before 9 11 when you could still get through the airport without a boarding pass, smoke in NY bars, no one had a cell phone and we didn t put kids in car seats One nanny goes nuts, many get fired, deported, and another nanny ends up smoking crack

    Maybe I found this book so easy to relate to because I was once a sassy girl from the Pacific Northwest with a borderline unhealthy wanderlust and a knack for getting myself into trouble I loved the main character, Michelle She s smart, witty, and terrible at acting her age this combination gets her into and out of, now that I think about it quite a number of situations that she isn t all that ready to take on There were a couple of twists I didn t see coming I always appreciate that a Maybe I found this book so easy to relate to because I was once a sassy girl from the Pacific Northwest with a borderline unhealthy wanderlust and a knack for getting myself into trouble I loved the main character, Michelle She s smart, witty, and terrible at acting her age this combination gets her into and out of, now that I think about it quite a number of situations that she isn t all that ready to take on There were a couple of twists I didn t see coming I always appreciate that and I devoured this book in just a couple of days This is a quick and entertaining read, and if you like the Stephanie Plum or Aurora Teagarden books, you ll like this one, too

    Fantastic book and a great entertaining read I think the beach house section seemed a bit rushed, and I wished it would of gone for a bit longer, but overall, a great book.
