From the bestselling author of You Should Have Known and Admission, a twisty new novel about a college president and a student protest that mirrors today’s campus unrest.

 

Naomi Roth is the first female president of Webster College, a once conservative school now known for producing fired-up, progressive graduates. A former student radical herself, Naomi isn’t alarmed when Webster students, including her own daughter, begin an outdoor encampment to protest a popular professor’s denial of tenure, but when Omar Khayal, a charismatic Palestinian student with a devastating personal history, emerges as the group’s leader, shocking acts of vandalism begin to destabilize the campus. As the crisis slips beyond her control, Naomi struggles to protect her friends, colleagues, and family from an unknowable adversary. A riveting novel about who we think we are, and what we think we believe.
