Big little lies is about three mothers and their circle of friends, who meet up as their children are about to start school together. Madeline who also has a teenager and an ex husband who has remarried with a new wife and young children. Celeste, uber gorgeous and rich, with a globe trotting husband and twin boys. And Jane, single mother who is new to the area.
She certainly did a good job of writing about the blonde bob gang of mothers who drive SUVs to drop their kiddies off to school and then dash to pilates and coffee for their day, we see those women around at drop off time every day. I did find that I liked the book better as it went along, as something about the beginning of it felt a bit overworked for me and I was just about to put it aside.
