Getting into this book took some time for me. There are a number of plotlines and an even larger number of characters in this complex, layered bit of chick lit. If you haven't read the original "Nanny Diaries", or it's been a while, you don't necessarily have to re-read it, Nan will catch you up. The book advances 12 years into Nanny's life: she's now a newlywed, just gotten her master's degree, and a new house and a new job when her former protege, Grayer X shows up on her doorstep one night and demands to know why she abandoned him all those years ago. Grayer draws her back into the lives of the X family and she attempts to reconnect with him and several of her old friends at the same time. This is a sharply funny send-up of the NYC elite population. I wasn't as drawn to this as I was to the original "Nanny Diaries", but this was still an interesting segue. I would advise packing a piece of paper to note character lists because there are a bunch of them and it is sometimes hard to keep them all straight.

After waiting so long, this was a good sequel to the Nanny Diaries. It really showed the depth of each character and how they evolved over the course of the past 12 years. You'll have to read the Nanny Diaries first so that you'll understand each character, because they are kind of complex!

Very fun! Not as good as the first, but SO much better than Emma and Nicola's other attempts at books.

Not as good as the first one, but still entertaining. Many references to things/people in NY.
