Karen Bloom expects perfection. Her son, Ewan, has been something of a disappointment and she won't be making the same mistake again with her beloved, talented child, Bronte.

Bronte's every waking hour will be spent at music lessons and dance classes, doing extra schoolwork and whatever it takes to excel.

But as Karen pushes Bronte to the brink, the rest of the family crumbles. Karen's husband, Noel, is losing himself in work, and his teenage daughter from his first marriage, Verity, is becoming ever more volatile. The family is dangerously near breaking point.

This book sounded so promising but disappointed a bit in the end.
Karen, tiger mom and main point of friction, remained very flat. I would have loved more background, more history, but instead just a lot of things were hinted at and not really explained. What were her motivations really?
Also I really didn't like Noel, the husband. he never really cared about his kids or stand up for them; instead of facing his marital problems, he started cheating and drinking; typical asshole behaviour! Dear Joanne, if I were you, I would stay away from that guy!

Thank you for sending this my way.
As my TBR pile is massive it may take me a while to get to this.
