I Will Survive – Pippa James

5am. It’s still dark outside.
Hit snooze, hit snooze again.
But it’s not the alarm, it’s the kids. The cat’s just been sick in the bunk beds.
Now my little darlings are jumping in it. And I’m hiding in the bathroom.
Welcome to the mad house… where each day is a rollercoaster of chaos, sticky hugs and exhaustion.
Surely it’s about time I swapped wet wipes for some wild nights out with the girls?



My review

School does not only change the kids’ lives …

This book was so relaxing. I read it in one go on a lazy Sunday and it was all I needed to reload my batteries.

The story takes us, mums, back to the days when our children had to start school. A period full of good and not so good memories. Oh no, don’t think you can enjoy this one if you are not a mum (yet). Maybe it will remind you of your own first days or of a niece, cousin, …, but most of all it’s about growing up, coming out of your shell, seeing the difference between real and fake friends.

I hope this book is the beginning of a series, because I certainly want to know what happens next. It would be too cruel to leave us hanging here. LOL. 5 stars.

Thank you, Pippa James, Bookouture and Netgalley


About the author

Growing up in Birmingham, Pippa James was never without at least one book on the go and therefore lived several different lives concurrently. As an adult, she would like to spend much of her time the same way, but she now lives a chaotic life in a small Derbyshire town with her husband and two children. Her writing is frequently interrupted by parenting duties and her day job as a teacher and the only way she can find a quiet space to think, is by taking her laptop to the pub, which she does at every opportunity.
