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.'

    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.

                          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.
