"The author of the bestselling novel The Party--lauded as "tense and riveting" by New York Times bestselling author Megan Miranda--returns with a chilling new domestic drama about two women whose deep friendship is threatened by dark, long-buried secrets. Frances Metcalfe is struggling to stay afloat. A stay-at-home mom whose troubled son is her full-time job, she thought that the day he got accepted into the elite Forrester Academy would be the day she started living her life. Overweight, insecure, and lonely, she is desperate to fit into Forrester's world. But after a disturbing incident at the school leads the other children and their families to ostracize the Metcalfes, she feels more alone than ever before. Until she meets Kate Randolph. Kate is everything Frances is not: beautiful, wealthy, powerful, and confident. And for some reason, she's not interested in being friends with any of the other Forrester moms--only Frances. As the two bond over their disdain of the Forrester snobs and the fierce love they have for their sons, a startling secret threatens to tear them apart"The author of the bestselling novel The Party--lauded as "tense and riveting" by New York Times bestselling author Megan Miranda--returns with a chilling new domestic drama about two women whose deep friendship is threatened by dark, long-buried secrets"--… (mais)

The right elements were there... but none were complete, or in the right order. This was both over-edited and under-edited. Summed up... "Eh...". ( )

Frances Metcalfe is insecure, a few pounds overweight, with a son who is a bit of a handful. After an incident at the private school involving her son, she feels like an outcast. Also, Frances is harboring a secret from her childhood that she has not told her husband, Jason. Enter Kate, the stylish, slim, and put-together mom of two. Kate notices how the other moms treat Frances and befriends Frances, standing up to the mean moms. Frances instantly bonds with Kate. But, does Frances really know her friend?
Kate’s daughter, Daisy, is rebellious and doesn’t have a good relationship with her mom. When Daisy puts her trust in an older man, she needs to reach out to Frances for help. In doing so, Frances discovers something about Kate which calls their friendship into question. Additionally, there is a storyline from years earlier about the treatment and death of a young girl which has a long lasting effect on several people. The trial made headlines and plays a part in current day happenings.
This book explores many issues, friendship, acceptance, guilt, trust, control, manipulation, revenge, and more. It kept my interest. I thought I had most of it figured out, but I was wrong about a few things. I like when that happens, as the author has surprised me. ( )

This book is typically filed under domestic thriller etc, to me it was quite a cozy read rather than an all out thriller. I read it quickly, the plot was good enough (an elite private school where social standing is everything, two very different woman form a friendship from the friendship of their boys...) This story is told from three distinct viewpoints with yet another story woven in between. It's well written and composed in a fashion that makes it easy to follow. While I saw the ending coming from near the beginning, I still didn't want to put the book down, the journey to get where I knew I was going was enjoyable. ( )
