Elena Fairchild is a teacher at one of the state’s new elite schools. Her daughters are exactly like her: beautiful, ambitious, and perfect. A good thing, since the recent mandate that’s swept the country is all about perfection.

Now everyone must undergo routine tests for their quotient, Q, and any children who don’t measure up are placed into new government schools. Instead, teachers can focus on the gifted.

Elena tells herself it’s not about eugenics, not really, but when one of her daughters scores lower than expected and is taken away, she intentionally fails her own test to go with her.

But what Elena discovers is far more terrifying than she ever imagined…

Firsly thanks to hq for sending me the link to read on netgalley, my first one as im more of a physical reader.

I loved vox , which was her debut. This is a author whos not afraid to write the shock factor . Life kind of feels a bit strange that dystopian doesnt feel that different. But even so fiction is the cure.

As a mum of 2 special needs kids this was a challenging, thought provoking book. It makes you question your morals and ideas.

Chilling,thrilling and captivating.

Dark and disturbing but also scarily realistic.

Although not a easy read it also empowers women like her first book.
