I remember the moment my son’s teacher told us, “Just a little medication could really turn things around for Will.” We stared at her as if she were speaking Greek.
“Are you talking about Ritalin?” my husband asked.
Bronwen Hruska, NYT Sunday Review – August 18, 2012
★ Library Journal Starred Review
“Debut author [Bronwen Hruska] has woven an engagingly believable narrative with just the right amount of snark. VERDICT This compelling story of high-pressure early academics in Manhattan will appeal to readers of Tom Perrotta, Jennifer Haigh, and other authors whose novels about families in a particular segment of society illuminate the larger human condition.”

Parents’ Warning. Browen Hruska’s…cautionary tale is universal: “It’s not just this school, not just Manhattan, and not just New York, but all over the country.” My prediction: lots of controversy when the book publishes.

“There’s a lot to talk about once you finish it; I can see book groups weighing in on all sides of the meds issue as there is much to explore. When I was reading it, I saw a piece in the New York Times talking about kids snorting drugs before the SATs to improve their focus. Wild!”
