An Aggie Book Review: The Nanny Diaries

It's summer and that Means it's the season for reading books!  I recently went to the store and picked up a couple random books to keep me occupied in the mornings before I have to go to work. 

I completed "The Nanny Diaries" within a couple days because it was an easy read but I don't think I would recommend it to anyone... unless you're a nanny.  The language in the book is pretty heavy so i'd feel bad for saying that it was "good".  If you're a nanny you will gain an immense appreciation for your job and the family you work for while reading this book.  You never realize just how good you have it until you see or read about someone who is treated so poorly.  The story isn't overly exciting but you are compelled to keep reading because a. you wonder what the employers are going to do next b. will she stand up for herself and c. will things get any better. 

To be honest I think this book was only a New York Times Best Seller because tons of rich women went out and bought the book because they wanted to see if it was their family that was being written about.  Definitely not on my list of favorite books.
