Fiercely independent and seriously lacking in social graces, ad copywriter Michaela "Mike" Edwards doesn't do sugar and spice. Mike avoids other women altogether, preferring the company of her hotshot boss, and her only friend—an Australian journalist named Gunther. But when mishandled office politics force Mike out of advertising, she finds herself doing the unimaginable: moving back in with her dad and substitute teaching for 6th grade girls.
Suddenly the men in Mike's life are changing the rules: her father is in love, her ex has made her the subject of his comedy routine, her mentor is in a tailspin, and Gunther is looking like more than a friend. Mike is lost and searching for answers in all the wrong places. But whether she likes it or not, a classroom of kids who need her and a family of women she didn't know she wanted are about to help Mike discover the mother she never knew, and the woman she'd like to be...
