' A gripping, full-throttle page-turner. . . puts the reader right in the eye of the emotional storm' Miranda Cowley Heller, author of THE PAPER PALACE_________________________________________An adrenaline-fuelled story of lives upended and privilege lost in a swiftly changing world. Daphne Larsen-Hall has every reason to believe that her life as an artist in a luxury Miami house with her surgeon husband, Brantley, and their family, will carry on forever. But Luna - the world' s first Category 6 hurricane - changes everything. With Brantley missing in the aftermath of the massive storm, Daphne and their children find themselves in a vast shelter for the displaced a thousand miles from home, their finances abruptly cut off. As days turn into weeks, the family confronts losses and circumstances they never imagined, and a world that has changed beneath their feet. When tensions in the shelter reach a breaking point, Daphne' s resilience is put to the ultimate test as she realises ' normal' will never return - and faces the shocking truths that threaten to tear her family apart once more. _________________________________________Praise for Bruce Holsinger' s The Gifted School:' More than a touch of Liane Moriarty' s Big Little Lies' Observer ' An incisive inspective of privilege, race and class' New York Times ' Snapping with tension, this is a book for our times' Shari Lapena ' Exposes how easily a mix of good intentions, self-delusions and minor sins can escalate' The New Yorker
