5 star read. I read this book for the first time in 2015 and found it a stunning read and I've just finished re-reading it for my book club this month and I haven't changed my opinion of the book. In fact, I think I enjoyed it more the second read. My original review was: "I am so glad I discovered Liane Moriarty's books. This is the third of her books I have read and I found it a stunning read. It begins with an elementary school in a posh beach neighbourhood in Australia. Anyone who has spent any time in a school will recognize the characters. A young boy has been accused of hurting and bullying a little girl. Parents get involved and sides are selected. A lot of gossip and unkindness happens, as it would in real life. But behind the scenes, real lives with real problems are happening and things aren't always as they seem. This was a well written page turner and I plan to read all of her excellent books. "
