Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty 2014
Big Little Lies follows three women, each at a crossroads: Madeline, a force to be reckoned with. She remembers everything and forgives no one including her ex-husband and his new cutesy wife. Celeste, mother of twin boys who is looking forward to becoming the queen of her boys’ elementary school but the price she’ll have to pay is quite steep…is she willing to do it? Jane, a new-to-town single mom has some worries about her son…a few worries a few secrets. Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandals, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.
