Little Children Paperback
by Tom Perrotta
Part of the Allison & Busby Classics series
Todd, the handsome stay-at-home-dad - the one all the playground Moms admire in a silent look-but-do-not-touch fashion.
He's trying (for his wife's sake) to pass his bar exam although he blatantly doesn't want to be a lawyer, and in a desperate attempt to reclaim his youth joins a midnight touch-football team - and starts a passionate affair with Sarah.
Sarah is a lapsed feminist who isn't quite sure how she ended up being a traditional wife.
She's the kind of mother who (shock horror) is capable of forgetting her daughter's snack, and in a moment's rebellion dares to kiss Todd in front of the mother's group.

Review by cathymoore
This was quite an easy quick read. Set in modern American suburbia, two bored parents begin an extra marital affair. This is very much a character study. Thought provoking rather than earth shattering.
