Publisher's Summary

Karen Bloom has always wanted the best things in life. And that includes her children; quite simply, she expects them to be perfect. Her son, Ewan, has been something of a disappointment, and she won't be making the same mistake again with her beloved daughter, Bronte. Bronte's every waking hour will be spent at music lessons and dance classes, doing 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 near breaking point. Karen is about to learn just how deadly the pursuit of success can be....

    "Excellent!"
    Any additional comments?

    This book draws the listener in. It is well written, unusual and clever. The characters are well drawn and there are satisfying twists and turns. It's a really great read/listen.

    "Gripping story"

    clever plot and well presented. I couldn't guess the ending despite trying! Well narrated but the narrator did a bad Scottish accent though.

    Story
    "Not a strong, satisfying story"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I felt the 'trophy child' aspect of the story was weak and the overall story was contrived in an unconvincing way. The ending, in particular, was not really connected. There was no real substance to the characters.


    Would you recommend The Trophy Child to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, I wouldn't because it was an unsatisfying. A bit like eating some junk food which you regret.
