According To Yes




Manhattan's wealthy Upper East Side has its own rigid code of behaviour. One strictly adhered to by the Wilder-Bingham family.

Manhattan's wealthy Upper East Side has its own rigid code of behaviour. One strictly adhered to by the Wilder-Bingham family.

Emotional displays - unacceptable.

Unruly behaviour - definitely not welcome.

Fun - no thanks.

So when Rosie Kitto, an eccentric primary school teacher from England, bonces into this fortress of restraint with a heart as big as the city, the family quickly discovers that she hasn't read the rule book.

After a lifetime of saying no, what happens when everyone starts saying . . . yes?
