What if your own husband was accused of sexual misconduct?

'You will be left wondering just who George is, and indeed, who you are.' Irish News

For readers who were gripped by Megan Abbott's The Fever and Louise O'Neill's Asking For It .

SHORTLISTED FOR THE SCOTIABANK GILLER PRIZE

THE BEST KIND OF PEOPLE is a page-turning Canadian bestseller about a family on the brink of collapse. It gives no easy answers, but once you stay up all night reading it, you'll want to talk about it with everyone you know.


For the past ten years, science teacher George Woodbury has been hailed a suburban hero.

But when his daughter Sadie turns 17, George is arrested for sexual misconduct with her own classmates, while his wife Joan looks on in shock.

As George awaits trial, his son Andrew, a lawyer in New York, returns home to help, only to confront his own unhappy memories.

How can the family defend the man they love while wrestling with the possibility of his guilt?

Provocative and unforgettable, The Best Kind of People reveals the cracks along the seams of even the most perfect lives and the unraveling of an all-American family.

'Urgent and timely, nuanced and brave. This gripping story challenges how we hear women and girls, and dissects the self-hypnosis and fear that prevent us from speaking disruptive truth.' Scotiabank Giller Prize Jury

'Compelling story characters readers will recognize and come to love and writing that makes it effortless to turn page after page.' Vancouver Sun
