“It was so captivating, thought-provoking and beautifully written, everything I tried to pick up next paled in comparison...” - The TODAY Show

Our pick of the month, The School for Good Mothers, is an explosive, gripping and infuriatingly timely novel about love and the pressures of perfectionism, parenthood and privilege.

Frida just had to finish the article in front of her. But she'd left a file on her desk at work. What would happen if she retrieved it and came back in an hour? She was so sure it would be okay. Now, after one lapse in judgement, the state has decided that Frida is not fit to care for her daughter. That she must be re-trained. Soon, mothers everywhere will be re-educated. Will their mistakes cost them everything?

New York Times bestseller Jessamine Chan is a Chinese-American author and this is her debut novel. She was former reviews editor at Publishers Weekly and her short stories have appeared in Tin House and Epoch. She is based in Chicago, USA with her husband and daughter.
