a book in review! & giveaway

Brief Summary;
Executive, wife, and mother of an outgoing first-grader, Sydney Clayton crushes her day-to-day obligations at work but flounders in the cutthroat world of parental politics.
She manages to avoid the local drama until she’s faced with an ultimatum: join the Forest River PTA or risk her daughter becoming a social outcast. Sydney reluctantly becomes treasurer, and takes the recently vacated position of the president’s sidekick. If protecting the children’s freedom of speech, one best friend ban at a time, isn’t complicated enough, Sydney and her husband receive an unexpected offer for their house they don’t think they can refuse.
Embroiled in the deception and manipulation rife among the elementary school moms, Sydney struggles. Should she sell the home she worked so hard to build in a town where betrayal runs rampant? Or should she stay put to avoid the fallout from uprooting her child? As Sydney focuses on what is best for her daughter, and lets go of her judgments, she finds friendship can develop in very unexpected ways.
Warm, witty, and wise, Go On, Girl dramatizes the dilemmas of life in the suburbs and the bonds shared by women. Perfect for fans of Class Mom and I Don’t Know How She Does It.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. If you are looking for your next real life read, look no further! Hilary does an amazing job at not sugar coating real life situations in her 4th novel. Sydney is a likeable lead who will feel like a friend who you're sitting down to have coffee with and catch up. Go On, Girl would make for a great book club read among moms to get dialogues started on how they handle all of their hats (as a dog mom only, I find life to get hard, I could only imagine how human moms do it.) I recommend this 5 star quick weekend read to anyone who is in the need for a dose of suburban life, xo!
