Author(s): Kevin Wilson
Isabelle Pool, recently graduated from high school and pregnant with her art teacher's baby, is just about out of options.Her mother is dead, her father's a drunk, and the art teacher is too much of a head-case to help raise the child. Izzy knows she can be a good mother but without any money or prospects, she's left searching. So when she's offered a space in The Infinite Family Project - a utopian ideal funded by an eccentric billionaire - she accepts. Housed in a spacious compound in Tennessee, she joins nine other couples, all with children the same age as her newborn son, to raise their children as one extended family, in their own perfect little world. But can this experiment really work- or is destined to go horribly wrong? At once disarmingly humorous and deeply thought-provoking, Perfect Little World is a novel about how the best families are the ones we make for ourselves.
