The School for Good Mothers

by Jessamine Chan

Frida has had a bad year. She gave birth to her daughter, discovered her husband was cheating, and had her heart broken when he left her for the other woman. A woman that now sees her daughter more than she does. Frida wants to be a good mother, but is struggling.

But one bad day, and one terrible decision, mean that she might lose her daughter forever. Her only shot at redemption is a year in a government mandated reeducation program, where she’ll be cut off from society in a high surveillance facility filled with other “bad” mothers.

Horrifying and darkly humorous, Chan’s gut-wrenching tale is eerily plausible, and shines a light on our darkest fears and insecurities about love and imperfection. – Skye
