I almost never stay up late to finish a book, I mean really, there just comes a point at night that I would rather sleep. And yet last night, there I was. Finishing this book. Maybe I did the same with The Husband's Secret, I don't really remember, but as of this moment I think I liked this one better.
The story of Madeline, Celeste and Jane is both funny and disturbing - how this author can write such a light book that is also such a dark, dark book is beyond me. The secrets, lies, and gossip of this group of kindergarten moms is entirely entertaining, and knowing all along that it will lead to some tragedy - but not what that tragedy is - makes it compulsively readable as well. I even liked the bad guys in this book. And the ending - sometimes a perfectly good book can be ruined by a perfectly stupid ending. The ending of this book did not disappoint me at all. I never expected it, which is good, and though it was sad, it was still exactly how I found I wanted it to end. Loved it.
