“I thoroughly enjoyed The Hawthorne School. I loved the way the texture was built around the story, with a sense of foreboding early on, even as it seemed like everything was going well. The twists make for a fast and wild ride all the way to the end.”
—Rena Olsen, author of The Girl Before

"Perry excels in getting inside the head of an unsure mom and has written one of the most unusual and best mysteries of 2021. Fans of psychological mysteries and of the movie Get Out 

are the audience for this"

.—Henrietta Verma, book reviewer for First Clue


“The Hawthorne School is a pulse-pounding psychological thriller that will have you furiously flipping pages until its heart-stopping conclusion. But it is much more than that too. Long after you’ve turned that last page, it forces you to consider how far would you’d go for your family and the ways others can prey on you.”
—Adam Mitzner, Amazon Charts bestselling author of 

The Perfect Marriage

“Dark, haunting, and masterfully rendered, I couldn't stop reading The Hawthorne School. It's a dynamic, multifaceted study in obsession, manipulation, and power, as well as an in-depth exploration into the relationship between mother and child. This story and its characters will stay with you long after the last page."
--Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, bestselling author of The Girls Are All So Nice Here 

"Spine-chilling, tense and thought-provoking, The Hawthorne School is a mesmeric read that doesn’t let go until the final page."--Laura Elliot, USA Today bestselling author of The Silent House
