When Wade Rouse--a rural, public school graduate who grew up more Hee Haw than Dynasty--was hired as the director of publicity at the prestigious Tate Academy, he quickly discovered his real job was to make a few of the very pretty, very rich, very mean mommies of the elite students happy.
Enter former Tate beauty queen and sports star Katherine Isabelle Ludington--Kitsy to her friends--who went to an Ivy, married an Ivy, and made a lot of money. Now, she is Wade's VIP volunteer and a perfectly coiffed nightmare.
In between designing Louis Vuitton-inspired reunion invitations, dressing as Ronald Reagan for Halloween, and surviving surprise Botox parties, Wade tries to tame Kitsy and her pink Lilly Pulitzer-clad posse while reclaiming his self-esteem.
Following a year in the life of the super rich and super spoiled, Confessions of a Prep School Mommy Handler is hilarious, heartbreaking, and deliciously catty.
"Wade Rouse has a fantastically sharp and snarky voice, and it's delicious fun to read about his personal misadventures among the wealthy behaving badly."
--Suzanne Hansen, author of You'll Never Nanny in This Town Again
"A treat, a trip, a triumph. Confessions of a Prep School Mommy Handler is a keenly observant and hilariously scathing peek into the entitled, Lilly Pulitzer-clad universe of an elite private school. With pinpoint accuracy, Wade Rouse pricks at this elite universe and comes away with surprising insights and valuable life lessons."--Josh Kilmer-Purcell, -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY.
