STAR RATINGS GUIDE
Incredibly Tough Book
🧡 Look, I know that going into a dystopia, especially one about motherhood, I shouldn’t expect a barrel of laughs, but this was so tough going. Part of that is that it is so long, probably about a third too long for that much doom and gloom.
💚 That said, it was beautifully written, thoughtful and thought provoking.
SQUAWKING THE TALK
🎧 Catherine Ho narrates this brilliantly and I can’t fault the production. I found it easy to follow and very evocative, enabling me to build up pictures of the characters in my mind.

The School for Good Mothers
We have your daughter.
Frida Liu is a struggling mother. She remembers taking Harriet from her cot and changing her nappy. She remembers giving her a morning bottle. They'd been up since four a.m.
Frida just had to finish the article in front of her. But she'd left a file on her desk at work. What would happen if she retrieved it and came back in an hour? She was so sure it would be okay.
Now, the state has decided that Frida is not fit to care for her daughter. That she must be re-trained. Soon, mothers everywhere will be re-educated. Will their mistakes cost them everything?
The School for Good Mothers is an explosive and thrilling novel about love and the pressures of perfectionism, parenthood and privilege.
