Girls With Bright Futures is the story of three Seattle prep school mothers whose daughters are locked in competition for a single spot at Stanford. As the competition heats up, one of the girls suffers a near-fatal accident that sends this privileged community into a spiral of panic and accusations, until one can’t help but wonder if there’s any line these families wouldn’t cross to secure their daughters’ futures. The book is a suspenseful read with a side of satire that takes a deep dive into the college industrial complex, income inequality, and elite entitlement. While the religious affiliations of the novel’s main characters are not specified, the authors are both Jewish and the book’s focus on elite higher education will likely resonate with many Jewish families.
