Class, by Lucinda Rosenfeld, is a satire about a liberal mother who sends her child to an urban public school. The synopsis says: "For idealistic forty-something Karen Kipple, it isn't enough that she works full-time in the non-profit sector, aiding an organisation that helps hungry children from disadvantaged homes. She's also determined to live her personal life in accordance with her ideals. This means sending her daughter, Ruby, to an integrated public school in their Brooklyn neighbourhood.
But when a troubled student from a nearby housing project begins bullying children in Ruby's class, the distant social and economic issues Karen has always claimed to care about so passionately feel uncomfortably close to home. As the situation at school escalates, Karen can't help but wonder whether her do-gooder husband takes himself and his causes more seriously than her work and Ruby's wellbeing." Class is out in January 2017.
