"What a wonderful writer—smart, wise, funny.” —Anne Lamott
Public’s annual school Trivia Night has ended in a shocking riot. One
parent is dead. The school principal is horrified. As police investigate
what appears to have been a tragic accident, signs begin to indicate
that this devastating death might have been cold-blooded murder.
In this thought-provoking novel, number-one New York Times–bestselling
author Liane Moriarty deftly explores the reality of parenting and
playground politics, ex-husbands and ex-wives, and fractured families.
And in her pitch-perfect way, she shows us the truth about what really

When I first started this book I was confused and not sure I could get
through it because I checked out the audio version from my library.

DID NOT see that one coming at all. It's not just about trying to figure
out who murdered who..whom? You think you might know what's going to
happen by the things being told about these stories of each woman's
life, but you just don't. There are several little surprises in the book
and a few people you would like to beat into a pulp.
thoroughly loved this book. I have to say this is the first book I have
read by this author but it's not going to the last if they are as good
as this one!
