'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.'

      A clever story that very accurately captures group dynamics and personalities in an entertaining way and at the same time addresses current serious social issues. A real page turner.

          Comments about Big Little Lies:

          Only took me a few days to read as i kept wanting to know what happened. Great character developments leading up to the "murder". There's little clue throughout the book that keep you guessing and in the end I was thoroughly satisfied with what happened.
