Minor Dramas & Other Catastrophes

When a devoted teacher comes under pressure for her progressive curriculum and a helicopter mom goes viral on social media, two women at odds with each other find themselves in similar predicaments, having to battle their way back from certain social ruin. Isobel Johnson has spent her career at Liston Heights sidestepping the community's high-powered families. But when she receives a threatening voice mail accusing her of anti-Americanism and a liberal agenda, she's in the spotlight. Meanwhile, Julia Abbott, obsessed with the casting of the school's winter musical, makes an error in judgment that has far-reaching consequences for her entire family. Brought together by the sting of public humiliation--and in response to a secret Facebook page created as an outlet for parent grievances--Isobel and Julia learn firsthand how entitlement and competition can go too far in an unforgettable debut novel that addresses parents behaving badly and teenagers speaking up--even against their own families.
