About the Author

Laurie Gelman was born and raised in the Great White North. She spent twenty-five years as a broadcaster in both Canada and the United States before trying her hand at writing novels. The author of Class Mom, Laurie has appeared on Live With Kelly and Ryan, Watch What Happens Live, and The Talk, among others. She lives in New York City with her husband, Michael Gelman, and two teenage daughters.


"Something tells me that Laurie Gelman has been volunteered many, many times. This is a must-read and a love letter to all those underappreciated multitaskers, who just want to be left alone." --Kelly Ripa

"Gelman's laugh-out-loud follow-up gets an A." --People

"Gelman gets right to the point reuniting readers with the main character they fell in love with in her debut, Class Mom...Her antics are laugh-out-loud funny, and she shows no signs of slowing down. The tone and pacing are excellent, and new characters, who come with their own issues and snark, are delightful." --Library Journal, *starred review*

"Wisecracking Jen Dixon is back in Gelman's enjoyable follow-up to Class Mom. This refreshing take on modern suburbia will appeal to fans of Lauren Weisberger." --Publishers Weekly

"Dixon's emails to and escapades among the concerned parents of Kansas City have the same anodyne quality as an old-fashioned television sitcom, with a pratfall, a wisecrack, and a chuckle every few minutes like clockwork... Just add chardonnay." --Kirkus Reviews

"All mothers will find themselves relating to Jen's struggles as a mother and wife in You've Been Volunteered."

"I just wish Jen was real so I could hang out with her. Hilarious and the exact escape I needed at night after putting my kid down. Funny, heartwarming, and fulfilling. Brava!" --Katie Lowes, actress

"Jen's cheeky and mildly cynical worldview will delight any mom who has ever had to convince fellow parents to bring gluten-free cupcakes to the class party. Give to fans of Allison Pearson and of Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic books." --Booklist

"In an age overrun with superheroes, Jennifer Dixon may have the most formidable superpower: smooth-flowing snark. Laurie Gelman's follow-up to Class Mom proves the pen is mightier than the sword, the shield, the hammer, or even wrist-propelled spider webs. It's great fun." --Tom Bergeron, Emmy Award-winning TV host

"This delicious sequel to Class Mom will resonate whether you're in the thick of the PTA years or looking back at them longingly. Get ready to laugh out loud with this highly relatable and breezy read." --Jane L. Rosen, author of Nine Women, One Dress
