A finalist for the Scotiabank Giller Prize and a national bestseller, Zoe Whittall''s The Best Kind of People is a stunning tour de force about the unravelling of an all-American family.

George Woodbury, an affable teacher and beloved husband and father, is arrested for sexual impropriety at a prestigious prep school. His wife, Joan, vaults between denial and rage as the community she loved turns on her. Their daughter, Sadie, a popular over-achieving high school senior, becomes a social pariah. Their son, Andrew, assists in his father''s defense, while wrestling with his own unhappy memories of his teen years. A local author tries to exploit their story, while an unlikely men''s rights activist attempts to get Sadie onside their cause.
