This is the first book I've read by Liane Moriarty, and I completely understand the hype around this author now. I loved this book! The characters are rich and relatable- who knew PTA could be this interesting? The story opens with the investigation of a murder, told through little bits of eyewitness testimony, and moves backwards from there. The back story is rich with character development and plot twists, ending up at the scene of the murder where (gasp!) you, the reader, finally find out who is the victim. But are they really a victim after all you've discovered along the way? Read this book! You won't be disappointed. As for me, I'm off to read another one of Moriarty's books, "Truly Madly Guilty." I can't wait!
Follows three mothers, each at a crossroads, and their potential involvement in a riot at a school trivia night that leaves one parent dead in what appears to be a tragic accident, but which evidence shows might have been premeditated.
