    First off what is with the title There is not one playground mentioned in this book, it has nothing to do with playgrounds I d call this a domestic thriller, set within a group of people who meet when they sign their children up for dyslexia tutoring which is never really mentioned much except that it was a reason why they got together at first The couples kind of become friends because their children become friends and everything goes from there I saw where it was going from a mile away, First off what is with the title There is not one playground mentioned in this book, it has nothing to do with playgrounds I d call this a domestic thriller, set within a group of people who meet when they sign their children up for dyslexia tutoring which is never really mentioned much except that it was a reason why they got together at first The couples kind of become friends because their children become friends and everything goes from there I saw where it was going from a mile away, but it was still a decent and readable thriller overall.A few too many characters and none of the adults are very good parents They are all so totally wrapped up in themselves and their issues sometimes rightfully so, but still that they don t have a clue what is going on with their kids And the kids were a bit too smart for their own good, I find it implausible that all of them were able to lie so easily and hide what was actually going on Some of the subject matter, especially with domestic ...
