Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
A witty tale with lively characters
This story centres around a public primary school. Up front you know there has been a murder, but who is the victim? As the multi-faceted lives of members of the kindy community are revealed, skeletons start to poke their heads out of closets, vicious streaks appear, and friendship bonds are formed.
Liane touches on some very serious issues in a compassionate and humorous way. Although I struggled with the stream-of-consciousness style to start with, I am glad I persisted with this dexterous story.
