May Contain Nuts by John O’Farrell

Alice never imagined she would
end up like this, so anxious after hearing about the dangers of meteorites
that she makes her children wear bike helmets in the wading pool. Her
husband, David, has taught their four-year-old to list every animal represented
in Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf. But the more they
push their children, the more things there are to worry about. It seems no
amount of gluten rationing or herbal teas can improve their children’s
intellectual development, and as Alice’s eldest child looks set to fail her
entrance exam for the exclusive private school on which her parents have
pinned all their hopes, Alice decides to take matters into her own hands.
With a baseball cap pulled low over her face, Alice shuffles into a hall of
two hundred kids and takes the test in place of her daughter, her first
examination in twenty years. With a comic eye for detail that has sent his
books to the top of the British best-seller lists, May Contain
Nuts
is a funny, compelling, and provocative satire of the manic
world of today’s overcompetitive, overprotective families.
