Can bad children happen to good mothers? A totally absorbing novel, for readers of Liane Moriarty, Lionel Shriver and Christos Tsiolkas. Blogger Lizzy's life is buzzing, happy, normal. Two gorgeous children, a handsome husband, destiny under control. For her real-life alter-ego Beth, things are unravelling. Tensions are simmering with her husband, mother-in-law and even her own mother. Her teenage daughters, once the objects of her existence, have moved beyond her grasp and one of them has shown signs of, well, thoughtlessness ... Then a classmate of one daughter is callously bullied and the finger of blame is pointed at Beth's clever, beautiful child. Shattered, shamed and frightened, two families must negotiate worlds of cruelty they are totally ill-equipped for.

Really enjoyed this book. Great plot, liked the relationship between characters. Ending was great, it left you satisfied, and wanting to read more Wendy James.

This is the first Wendy James book I have read and will definitely read more. Great characterisation and extremely well written. James' captures the joy and complexity of all sorts of relationships - mother to child, husband and wife, female friendships and in-laws. Fans of Liane Moriarty will enjoy this book.
