Review

An acute, funny and sometimes scary comedy of manners . . . the literary debut of the year (The Times)

Clever and witty . . . through the minutiae of school-gate politics, Hornby skewers human nature with the sharpness of a parliamentary sketch writer . . . Anyone who has ever found themselves picked last for games or not invited for lunch will shudder with recognition . . . subtle and insightful (Sunday Times)

Genuinely charming (Guardian)

Uproariously funny . . . There's jealousy, despair, hope, fury, smugness and disappointment all crammed exhilaratingly together . . . [and] a beautifully constrained love interest (Angela Huth Spectator)

The jokes are funny, the sad bits are sad and the tone strikes just the right mix of satire and affection. The result is a rich slice of literary entertainment (Daily Mail)

With a wicked eye and a giant heart, Gill Hornby weaves a lively and hilarious tale that's pure fun. If you loved BRIDGET JONES'S DIARY . . . THE HIVE is the book for you (Maria Semple, Author of WHERE'D YOU GO, BERNADETTE?)

Book Description

Welcome to St Ambrose Primary School. A world of friendships, fights and feuding. And that's just the mothers...
