    1 thought on “The Sleepless Nanny”

    1. I think I saw this book first on a friends' goodread feed and thought that I'd enjoy a nanny book about a NYC nanny. Then someone was nice enough to gift it to my kindle. Really, the book was more of a nineteen-year-old in the big city coming of age story than a nanny-tell-all. And it was set in the early 90s or so, not the near-2011 that it's publication date had led me to expect. Once I accepted that it for what it was, I surprised myself with how much I enjoyed the book. The voice of the nine [...]

    2. This book was much better than I was expecting. It had some giggles, some *gasp* moments but all around a great story. Would definitely recommend!

    3. I admit that based on the title of this novel, I wasn't sure what it would really be about (other than the obvious), or if I'd really like it. I freely admit that kids aren't exactly my favorite thing -- so a story about them doesn't always appeal to me. Well, I learned that this book is about kids, but only to a certain extent -- it's really more about the lifestyle of a nanny, which I found quite interesting as it's something I didn't previously know much (anything) about, and the life of one [...]

    4. I'll caveat this review by mentioning that I've worked with the author, and I initially picked this up as the third "my friend wrote a book, I should read it" title so far this year. It's not a genre I typically read, and I had no idea what to expect. But although I know Ms. Charter, this review's honest -- if I hadn't thoroughly enjoyed the book, I'd simply not have commented on it. What makes this book an engaging read is a set of fully three-dimensional, realistic characters that really feel [...]

    5. I have decidedly fallen in love with this book. Michelle is a nineteen year old college freshman who has dropped out of college to move across the country to New York to be come a Nanny, an Au pair if you will, to one of those well to do families in the heart of the city. What she is not prepared for is the drastic life changes that comes from living in New York City. She is not prepared for the relationships that she comes across, she is not prepared for the demand and the treatment that comes [...]

    6. This book is dark. Unlike other nanny books you may have read it doesn't set out to trash the parents who hire au pairs and nannies; but you won't like them. It really exposes the problems of hiring unskilled teenagers and paying them a pittance. The main character is a child of a broken home and bad parenting. She is a victim waiting to happen. The other nannies are away from their homes and in NYC and out of their element.The book isn't specifically set in a time but it is before 9-11 when you [...]

    7. The Sleepless Nanny centers around the life of 19 year old Michelle, who decides to take a risk and move away from her friends & family to become a live-in Nanny.Through insights gleamed from Michelle's narration, we quickly discover that things are not what they first appear to to be.The Sleepless Nanny's pace is at times blisteringly quick, and the writing style lends itself well to that of a personal journal. While it's not intended to be read this way, it certainly helps set up the hecti [...]

    8. Maybe I found this book so easy to relate to because I was once a sassy girl from the Pacific Northwest with a borderline-unhealthy wanderlust and a knack for getting myself into trouble. I loved the main character, Michelle. She's smart, witty, and terrible at acting her age; this combination gets her into (and out of, now that I think about it) quite a number of situations that she isn't all that ready to take on. There were a couple of twists I didn't see coming - I always appreciate that - a [...]

    9. Fantastic book and a great entertaining read. I think the beach house section seemed a bit rushed, and I wished it would of gone for a bit longer, but overall, a great book.

    10. This isn't the Nanny Diaries and that's OK with me. It's a glimpse into that world, but also a story of a young adult figuring out life in the late 20th century. Overall, a good summer poolside read.

    11. Loved, loved, loved this. Hit all the right notes and kept me thoroughly entertained. Can't wait to read the author's other books!

    12. Not exactly what I expectedI went into this book having read some of the Lexy Cooper books. You can tell that this is a earlier book by the author, however that lends to its charm. I had not planned on getting the follow up book, however I want to know more about the characters.
