Technically it's an audiobook but I'm finishing up The Gifted School by Bruce Holsinger. Here's what Amazon says about it:

Quote:
Set in the fictional town of Crystal, Colorado, The Gifted School is a keenly entertaining novel that observes the drama within a community of friends and parents as good intentions and high ambitions collide in a pile-up with long-held secrets and lies. Seen through the lens of four families who've been a part of one another's lives since their kids were born over a decade ago, the story reveals not only the lengths that some adults are willing to go to get ahead, but the effect on the group's children, sibling relationships, marriages, and careers, as simmering resentments come to a boil and long-buried, explosive secrets surface and detonate. It's a humorous, keenly observed, timely take on ambitious parents, willful kids, and the pursuit of prestige, no matter the cost.
It's very well done; the kids speak and think like kids, the dialogue feels authentic. One one hand it feels like a juicy beach read, but on the other it also feels very realistic.

I just finished "My Sister The Serial Killer" by Oyinkan Braithwaite. It's set in Lagos, and is about a woman who is always cleaning up after her sister - literally. It was long listed for the Booker Prize this year.

"The Reckoning " by John Grisham.

I've been trying to read "Maeve Binchy: The Biography" by Piers Dudgeon, but it.is.so.dry. It's not keeping my interest.

Enjoyed the read, but in the end left me up in the air of what just happened?

I see that NinjaPoodle included a link with her book, and I think that's a great idea. Here's the one for "My Name Is Eva".
