'Kept me guessing right until the end. I devoured it.' Claire Douglas, author of LOCAL GIRL MISSING 'A terrific page turner' Guardian ********* A doting mother or a pushy parent? Karen Bloom expects perfection. Her son, Ewan, has been something of a disappointment and she won't be making the same mistake again with her beloved, talented child, Bronte. Bronte's every waking hour will be spent at music lessons and dance classes, doing extra schoolwork and 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 dangerously near breaking point. Karen would know when to stop . . . wouldn't she? ********* 'Another fantastic twisty-turny novel by one of my favourite authors. I am always enthralled by her books and this is her best yet' Jill Mansell 'The UK's answer to Liane Moriarty. Amazing' Claire McGowan 'Sheer perfection. The Trophy Child is gripping, darkly funny and bound to induce spasms of guilt in even the least pushy parent. I can't remember the last time I was so enthralled. I want to stand on a mountain top and tell everyone to read this brilliant novel' Mark Edwards
