The Perfect Mother

Aimee Molloy’s The Perfect Mother is a fast, easy, and entertaining read. A mother’s group in Brooklyn is rocked when one of the babies is kidnapped. The kidnapping reveals that not all the members of the group are what they appear to be. As a mother, I could relate to many of the group members’ feelings, but more than anything I was engrossed by the story and finding out what actually happened to baby Midas. Molloy does a good job of concealing, yet revealing, the truth, leaving me feeling intrigued and only slightly manipulated. Definitely a fun summer read.
