Do you really know what your daughter is up to?
In The Party, Christos Tsiolkas’s The Slap meets Liane Moriarty’s Big Little Lies, taking us behind the façade of the perfect family, exploring the secrets, betrayals, and moral lapses the neighbours don’t see.
The Party uncovers the lies and duplicities that children and parents tell each other. And tell themselves.
This is the novel everyone will be talking about!
Early praise for The Party:
‘Robyn Harding spins a masterful tale of the disintegration of a seemingly-perfect family in the aftermath of a disastrous sweet sixteen party. Engrossing and unflinching in its portrayal of the dark side of human nature, The Party takes the concept of ‘mean girls’ to a whole new level.’ —A. J. Banner, #1 bestselling author of The Good Neighbor and The Twilight Wife
‘Suspenseful and provocative, The Party is a story that will keep you reading and keep you thinking long after you’ve turned the last page. This is one party invitation you don’t want to turn down.’—Barbara Taylor Sissel, bestselling author of Crooked Little Lies
‘In this blistering fast read, self-obsessed soccer moms battle it out with their nasty teenagers who refuse to grow up. Why should they? Their parents never did… A compulsive page-turner that mines the push-pull between basic impulses and doing the ‘right thing,’ The Party is a domestic drama that spins off the rails with hellish consequences. Consider yourself warned.’—Erica Ferencik, author of The River at Night
