'I guess it started with the mothers.'

'It was all just a terrible misunderstanding.'

'I'll tell you exactly why it happened.'


Pirriwee Public's annual school Trivia Night has ended in a shocking riot. A parent is dead.

Liane Moriarty's new novel is funny and heartbreaking, challenging and compassionate. The No. 1 New York Times bestselling author turns her unique gaze on parenting and playground politics, showing us what really goes on behind closed suburban doors.

'Let me be clear. This is not a circus. This is a murder investigation.'

            Bought this book just after watching the first two episodes on Foxtel of this book. Read it in 3 days to jump ahead of the series. Loved the book, it was page turning and I couldn't put it down. Was a little slow to start, but then I just had to finish it.

              At first I thought that this was not worth reading...but I was drawn to it. In the end, I sat down and started to read it. Of course then I could not put in down . Definitely a book to read...love the style and the ending was a surprise. Btw read this before watching the foxtel series.

                  This book is everything i was led to believe, i purchased it when i started to watch the show on Foxtel, however I'm finding the book quite engaging and the settings are different in the book to the show, its a page turner which i have committed to reading for an hour each day to unwind from the day.

                    Characters are believable. Author really captures the school-yard lynch mob / politics well.

                        I purchased this to read before the series started. I was drawn into the story immediately and couldn't put it down, and cannot wait to firstly watch the series and secondly read more books by this author! The characters were interesting and intriguing, hit the mark with primary school mum-life with humour, candour and a tiny bit of tenderness. I enjoyed the format of story telling interspersed with comments from the characters' investigation interviews, leading to the 'big thing' end of the story We all know at least one of the characters that made me laugh, gasp in horror and feel genuine heartbreak.
