A warm, witty and relatable story of life on the front line of parenting, perfect for fans of Motherland and Catastrophe.
Being a Glass Lake mother is a full-time job...
If there's one thing Beverly Franklin knows, it's that if you don't at least try to get your kid into Glass Lake Primary, you're basically negligent.
Determined to hang on to her crown as Queen Bee of the 'Lakers', Beverley will do whatever it takes to protect the school's reputation.
So when a scandal involving her own 12-year-old daughter threatens to derail the annual school musical's appearance on national television, Beverley goes into overdrive. But in her efforts to protect her daughter and keep the musical on track, she misses what's really going, both in her own house and in the insular Glass Lake community, with dramatic consequences...
