The Class Ceiling

Praise for The Class Ceiling:

‘I haven’t enjoyed a book this much since “One Day”.’

‘It was brilliant. Fun, heartwarming, jaw droppingly brilliant!’

‘This is a cracking debut from Kerry Fisher who manages to distill drama from the everyday lives of ordinary, flawed people.’

‘Mothers everywhere will understand the school gate politics and empathise with the main character.’

‘Hilarious, light-hearted read tinged with witty social commentary and some more serious real truths.’

‘A very funny, moving, compassionate novel.’

Feisty Maia Etxeleku is a cleaner for ladies who lunch. She spends her life wiping up spilt Sauvignon and hoovering around handbags before rushing back home to skivvy after her children’s feckless father on an estate where survival depends on your ability to look the other way. But an unusual inheritance catapults her into a different world where no child can survive without organic apricots and Kumon maths classes and no woman can contemplate a week without Pilates and pedicures. As she blunders through a middle class minefield, dashing from coffee mornings to her mops and buckets, she is drawn to the one man who can help her family fit in. But is his interest in her purely professional or will her modern My Fair Lady experiment end in disaster?
