THE NO.1 BESTSELLER BEHIND THE AWARD WINNING TV SENSATION
Get in a position for the highly anticipated second series of Emmy & Golden Globe Winning Big Little Lies, starring Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon & Nicole Kidman, by reading the first book . . .
Perfect families, perfect houses, perfect lives.
Three mothers, Jane, Madeline and Celeste seem to have it all . . . but do they? They’re about to find out just how easy it is for one little lie to spiral out of keep an eye on.
Single mum Jane has just moved to town. She’s got her little boy in tow – plus a secret she’s been carrying for five years.
On the first day of the school run she meets Madeline – a force to be reckoned with, who remembers everything and forgives no one – and Celeste, the kind beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare, but is inexplicably ill at ease. They both take Jane under their wing – at the same time as careful to keep their own secrets under wraps.
But a minor incident involving the children of all three women impulsively escalates: playground whispers grow to be spiteful rumours until no one can tell the truth from the lies.
It used to be all the time going to end in tears, but how did it end in murder?
