Pirriwee Public's annual school Trivia Night has ended in a shocking riot. One parent is dead. The school principal is horrified. As police investigate what appears to have been a tragic accident, signs begin to indicate that this devastating death might have been cold-blooded murder. In this thought-provoking novel, number-one New York Times best-selling author Liane Moriarty deftly explores the reality of parenting and playground politics, ex-husbands and ex-wives, and fractured families.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Just an awful read by Bruce Mann. I've listen to many, many books and have never, EVER not been able to finish it because of the reader. As another reviewer said…I'll get the book!
