About this title


Having moved from one academic outpost to another throughout her childhood at the side of her aphorism-prone father, Blue van Meer attends the elite St. Gallway School in her senior year, where she falls in with a charismatic group of friends before the deaths of a teacher and student awaken her analytical instincts. A first novel. 50,000 first printing.

From the Back Cover:

"Marisha Pessl’s dark, funny, captivating novel is so smart and edgy, the reader is irresistibly drawn into Blue Van Meer's complicated world of intellect, murder and mystery, captured by Pessl’s distinctive voice and wonderful story telling."
--Susan Richards Shreve, author of A STUDENT OF LIVING THINGS

"Beneath the foam of this exuberant debut is a dark, strong drink."
--Jonathan Franzen, Winner of the National Book Award and author of THE CORRECTIONS
