Customer Reviews

“Just as good as Liane Moriarty’s Big Little Lies.”

— Kirkus Reviews (starred)

“A cutting and witty examination of modern parenting that excels in suburban relatability, West’s debut novel will pique the curiosity of fans of Maria Semple’s Where’d You Go, Bernadette.”

— Booklist
