Meet Dr. Shelley Green, newly minted pediatrician. After graduating from medical school at the top of her class, Shelley is hired by Madison Pediatrics, the most exclusive practice on New York's Upper East Side. Hyper-parenting has reached epidemic proportions, and Madison Pediatrics is its over-privileged epicenter. Shelley, a superb doctor with a kid-friendly touch and a genius for diagnosis, quickly becomes the Upper East Side's latest must-have accessory, the darling of the fabulously-wealthy-with-kids crowd. Now this self-described "schlumpy girl from Jackson Heights" is slimming down, dressing up in Fendi and Prada, and weekending in the Hamptons, and Arthur—her adorable schoolteacher fiancé—is left baffled by the changes.
Enter Josh Potter, the blue-blooded hunk who never seems to have his check book around. What he does have is charm, connections, and enough sex appeal to set Shelley's head spinning. Before long, Shelley's plate is way too full: men, medicine, and meddling mothers. Can she handle it all without losing her soul—and her fiancé? Dr. Judy Goldstein and Sebastian Stuart have teamed up to deliver a delicious dose of fiction, brimming with acerbic wit, dead-on-satire, and, finally, poignancy and heart.
