The Hive by Gil Hornby. Published by Little, Brown

A new school year. A new chance for school moms to rip into each other and everybody else. These groups always have a ringleader and this one has Beatrice, she who is to be obeyed, champion fund raiser and queen of all she surveys. Heather just wants to be accepted, Georgie plays along and Rachel watches all with a cynical eye.

Yes, these moms or moms just like them DO exist and they are at a school near you. At times bitter and sad, at others hilariously funny, The Hive is always thought provoking. It’s like being in high school all over again, but with a better car.
