The Gifted School

The Gifted School

Ambitious parents, wilful kids, and the pursuit of prestige - no matter the cost... A gripping page-turner for fans of Liane Moriarty's Big Little Lies.

'Wise and addictive . . . a suspenseful, laugh-out-loud page-turner and an incisive inspection of privilege, race and class.' The New York Times

In the peaceful, privileged community of Crystal, Colorado, a group of close friends are raising their families in harmony.

Until one day, news begins to spread that a gifted school will be opening its doors in their town. There are only a few prestigious places, and the competition will be ferocious.

As parents and children begin to compete, cracks start to show in this picturesque community. Fault lines appear between friends and siblings, in marriages and careers, as old resentments start to simmer and long-buried secrets threaten to detonate under the pressure. . .

Just how far will these parents go to give their children a good education, and what will be the ultimate price?

Praise for The Gifted School . . .

'Snapping with tension, this is a book for our times. It will push a lot of buttons for a lot of people' Shari Lapena, author of The Couple Next Door

'Exposes how easily a mix of good intentions, self-delusions, and minor sins can escalate into the kind of skullduggery that might prompt an F.B.I. sting.' The New Yorker
