Rosie O’Connell is a wife
and a mother struggling to get by. She knows she doesn’t belong at the prestigious Woolf Academy but she is determined to put her son Charlie in the school. She will do whatever it takes to fit in to be like the rest of the Woolf Mothers and especially The Circle.
The Circle is an exclusive club in the Woolf Academy run by a woman named Amala Kaur. All the woman inside the Circle are horrible people who obey whatever Amala says. Rosie believes her life will turn around for the better if she can just get inside the circle. She won’t need to struggle, she won’t need to worry about child care not only in the morning but after school too. It will all be there for her.
However, once she is inside the Circle she learns things are not what they seem.
This book had so many twists and turns which I really enjoyed it kept me very intrigued. Just when I thought I had things figured out, we are hit with another big twist. The writing was great and the story is very compelling.
Final Score: 4/5
