The Nanny Diaries

The Nanny Diaries
by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus

Ever wonder what it would be like to be a nanny to the rich? Two New York nannies spin their real-life experiences into a fictional diary following the life of 'Nanny' who takes a job for Mr. and Mrs. X while attending college. She soon finds out that - like her young charge, Grayer - she has become nothing more than a pawn in an endless cycle of greed and dishonesty. Time and time again, Nanny is put in awkward positions that make question her own moral judgement. Should she stay on and try to protect young Grayer from self-destructing in the endless cycle and vengeful society or try to save herself and whatever semblance of a life she has left? -- recommended by Sarah J. - South Branch Library

[Also available in downloadable audio, book-on-cd and DVD Adaptation formats.]
