Publisher's Summary

Originally published as Little Lies.
Pirriwee Public is a beautiful little beachside primary school where children are taught that ‘sharing is caring'. So how has the annual School Trivia Night ended in full-blown riot? Sirens are wailing. People are screaming. The principal is mortified.
And one parent is dead.
Was it a murder, a tragic accident, or just good parents gone bad? As the parents at Pirriwee Public are about to discover, sometimes it’s the little lies that turn out to be the most lethal. Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, school-yard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.
Please note: This is the same audiobook as Big Little Lies, also available from

Fascinatingly detailed insight into life

Would you consider the audio edition of Little Lies to be better than the print version?

I can't comment as I have not read the print version.

What other book might you compare Little Lies to, and why?

I have read one other book by Liane Moriarty and listened to one too so I have to compare Little Lies to these as they are all very detailed about lives of ordinary people in Australian towns.

What does Caroline Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The authentic accent and pronunciation of place names.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, I always listen in three daily instalments, my journey to and from work in the car and a long dog walk, a total of about two hours per day which is enough for me as I always have another book on the go on my Kindle.

Any additional comments?

I thoroughly enjoyed this insight into life as a kindergarten parent in Australia, thank goodness my own experience was less eventful!
