Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A fast-paced, moving exploration of motherhood and money, danger and deception, privilege and pretense…the perfect thinking person’s page-turner.” Joshilyn Jackson, author of Never Have I Ever
“Fast-paced and smart, thoughtful and full of heart. I never thought a book could combine the thrilling twists of a Sue Grafton novel and the literary complexity of the best Tana French, but Michelle Richmond has done it.” Amanda Eyre Ward, New York Times bestselling author
“Explores the underbelly of San Francisco, the pressures of Silicon Valley, and the love between a mother and her teenage son. I was captivated by…FBI agent Lina Connerly, and the plot twists kept me riveted.” Vendela Vida, author of We Run the Tides
“The Wonder Test paints a rich, complex picture of the San Francisco Bay Area that both resonates with its natural beauty and captures the darker aspects of being the extremely privileged cyber capital of the world.” Alice LaPlante, author of Half Moon Bay
