The Gifted School



The Gifted School Smart and juicy, a compulsively readable novel about a previously happy group of friends and parents that is nearly destroyed by their own competitiveness when an exclusive school for gifted children opens in the communityThis deliciously sharp novel captures the relentless ambitions and fears that animate parents and their children in modern America, exploring the conflicts between achievement and potential, talent and privilege Set in the fictional town of Crystal, Colorado,The Gifted Schoolis a keenly entertaining novel that observes the drama within a community of friends and parents as good intentions and high ambitions collide in a pile up with long held secrets and lies Seen through the lens of four families who ve been a part of one another s lives since their kids were born over a decade ago, the story reveals not only the lengths that some adults are willing to go to get ahead, but the effect on the group s children, sibling relationships, marriages, and careers, as simmering resentments come to a boil and long buried, explosive secrets surface and detonate It s a humorous, keenly observed, timely take on ambitious parents, willful kids, and the pursuit of prestige, no matter the cost.
