Bestselling author Fiona Neill is back with The Good Girl - a dark, compelling and controversial novel of one family's darkest secrets.
It's easy to blame the Fairports for everything that happened.
For a while Mum and Dad did just that. But the truth is we were already screwed before their removal van showed up just as the leaves started falling that autumn.
Although we didn't know it at the time, they had arrived just as our life was about to fall apart From the number one bestselling author Fiona Neill, The Good Girl is a provocative and unflinching novel of a family falling apart. Praise for Fiona Neill: "Neill writes with verve, honesty and breathtaking insight.
Utterly unputdownable." (Helen Walsh, author of The Lemon Grove). "Neill's characters are so cleverly depicted, you feel as if you've met at least one of them before." (Vogue). "Packed with observations of wince-making accuracy." (The Times). "Clever, grown-up and totally gripping." (Lisa Jewell). "A topical, tense and addictive read." (Good Housekeeping). "Neill takes a light scalpel to online disaster in this exceptional dual-narrative." (Grazia). "Two families become embroiled in each other's lives and long buried secrets are unravelled.
Contemporary issues are tackled here with both humour and realism, making for an engrossing read." (My Weekly). "Cracking." (Prima). "The Slummy Mummy columnist is back - this time, somewhat incongruously, with a psychological thriller.
The Good Girl looks set to be the next Gone Girl, with its dark compelling exploration of family secrets.
It tells the story of the relationship of two teenagers and their families when a chain of events leads to a scandal that affects them all.
A confronting look at the way that one moment of malice on social media can spiral out of control." (Seven Books to Read, House Seven).
