More than four million readers fell in love with Nan, the smart, spirited, and sympathetic heroine of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Nanny Diaries.

After living abroad for twelve years, Nan and her husband, Ryan, aka H.H., have returned to New York to get her new business off the ground and fix up their fixer-upper. To compound the mounting construction woes and marital chaos of Ryan announcing his sudden desire to start a family, sixteen-year-old Grayer X makes a drunken, late-night visit wanting to know why Nan abandoned him all those years ago. Soon she is drawn back into Mrs. X's ever-bizarre Upper East Side conclave of power and privilege in this 'eminently readable' and 'surprisingly affecting' (Entertainment Weekly) tale of what happens when a community that chooses money over love finds itself with neither.

I enjoyed this insight to a very distinctive family and the nanny who Grayer sought out to find solace in. It was believable. I am in a similar situation in real life. I love my “other daughter” who adopted me.

While not as funny as the first novel, it's pretty good and quite entertaining. As with the original story, the strangest things happen to Nan, but it's all still believable. I enjoyed the story and do recommend it.

this was a disappointment. The Nanny Diaries was a great book, very interesting. This was was terrible! I was very disappointed. The only bright spot was the reader did a good job.

This was a pretty good book. It was similar to the first book of the series, the Nanny Diaries. Like the original book, there were times of really painful examples of bad parenting. At times, almost too much to bear. The story line centered around 1) Nan's renewed relationship with the X boys (Greyor from the original book and his little brother) 2) Nan's job as an HR person for a school and 3) Nan's reaction to a moneypit house re-construction. I enjoyed the storyline with the X boys. It was nice to see some resolution to this storyline from the 1st book. I hated the storyline about Nan's job. She was the HR rep and helped the horrible people in charge to unfairly fire a good teacher. It was just too much -- so depressing. The house storyline was pretty funny in certain spots. If the school storyline hadn't been there, I think that I would have liked the book better. Overall, it is a worthwhile read if you liked the first one.
