The Nanny Diaries which was a sensation in 2002? It was inspired by the hairy experiences of former nannies, Nicola Kraus and Emma McLaughlin and details their adventures working for the well heeled society of New York. The Nanny Diaries was the story of Nan, a twenty something lady who takes on the job looking after the four year old Grayer in order to pay her way through college. However she finds herself at the beck and call of Grayer's mother, the formidable Mrs X who proceeds to make her life a living hell. The Nanny Diaries was made into a film in 2007, starring Scarlett Johnasson, Laura Linney and Alicia Keyes but failed to set the world alight. It was more or less a flop. Well eight years later we have a sequel to the book which is called, The Nanny Returns. It is set 12 years after Nan was sent packing from the household and a lot has changed. She is now happily married and about to set up her own business and everything is going swimmingly till she gets a visit from Grayer who is now a troubled teenager. He wants to know why she left so suddenly and with his parents embroiled in a bitter divorce, Nan finds herself wanting to protect Grayer and his little brother, Stilton from the animosity. Pretty soon she is sucked into the perils of Upper East negativity but will she survive it this time?
The Nanny Returns is out on 1st April and available to buy from amazon.
