The Applewood PTA is trying to find a fundraiser to raise the money for a much needed and much desired stadium for their elementary school. When they get a chance not only to get the stadium, but, in the process, to have a movie made at their school starring George Clooney, it is too much to pass up.

Four women join together to do everything possible to keep the project on track. In the process they forge an unbreakable bond. As they struggle to keep their project in place, they must deal with their own personal problems.


Ruth Moss, the rich, brassy head of the committee, must deal with her husband, Keith, an ex-attorney, who has been left incapacitated by a stroke. Acting as caretaker for her sometimes embarrassing husband and in constant competition with the PTA president, Suzanne, she uses a secret means to hide her pain.  


Maddie Shein, an emotionally needy former attorney who became a stay-at-home mom, constantly needs reassurance of her husband’s love. When she suspects her husband is having an affair, she is tempted to become intimate with her old friend Jack to make herself feel desirable again.


Lisa Slotnick, a wife and mother of four, tries desperately to stay in the background. Coping with her embarrassing, alcoholic mother and her fears that her youngest child’s speech is not developing as it should, she channels her energies into a secret outlet.


Beryl Berman, the chairperson of the PTA newsletter committee and one of George Clooney’s biggest fans, is the comedy relief who is always there to offer aid for her friends.


I enjoyed reading SECRET CONFESSIONS OF THE APPLEWOOD PTA so much that I hated to see it end. The well-developed characters enable the reader to empathize with them as they struggle through their problems with sometimes comical results. I never realized the PTA could be so much fun. Do not miss this hilarious story! It is not a story you will soon forget. I highly recommend SECRET CONFESSIONS OF THE APPLEWOOD PTA .
