Featured on i09's list of April releases! "Christina Dalcher's Master Class conjures an America informed by tragic elements of its past and present where science and humanity are both abused in ways that are all-too familiar and plausible. Her heroic women and tough yet elegant prose suggest Margaret Atwood updated for this moment. Master Class will confirm your fears and affirm your hope."--Michael D'Antonio, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of The State Boys Rebellion "The book's examination of the way people will accept more and more small social changes until the system becomes something unrecognizable and horrific feels timely and urgent...top notch and keeps the reader guessing. An engaging parable of dangerous social change."--Kirkus Reviews "Dalcher combines the pace and tension of a standout thriller with thought-provoking projections of the possible end result of ranking children based on test scores. Admirers of The Handmaid's Tale will be appropriately unsettled."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Dalcher's novel reads like an expanded episode of Black Mirror; it is terrifying, haunting, and cautionary."--Booklist "Dalcher has proven herself a master author of insidious suspense."--The Nerd Daily
