The Nanny Diaries by Nicola Kraus & Emma McLaughlin
Nan has tricky relationship with her employer Mrs X, a non existence relationship with Mr X. But she loves their little boy to pieces.
In between looking after four year old Grayer and running a thousand errands for Mrs X, his rich, uptight Manhattan mother, Nan is trying to have a life. There’s college, shopping, her friends, her cat George. And the geourges Harvard boy from the sixth floor…
But the X family’s drama intruding-visits from Mr X’s predatory mistress, catastrophic family outings and, as a final straw, the case of the marriage-destroying panties. As divorce looms, Nan realizes how attached she’s become to the X’s underloved son-and how nannying has become more than just a job.
