Synopsis

Perfect Little World is an unforgettable exploration of what it means to be family from New York Times bestselling author, Kevin Wilson.

Aren't the best families the ones we make for ourselves?

Isabelle Pool is fresh out of high school, pregnant with her art teacher's baby, and totally on her own. Izzy knows she can be a good mother but without any money or family to fall back on, 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. Isabelle joins nine other couples, all with children the same age as her newborn son, to raise their children as one extended family in a spacious, secluded compound in Tennessee. But can this experiment really work - or is their 'perfect little world' destined to go horribly wrong?

In the media

Persistently compassionate. . . . Wilson’s best moments are funny and earnest . . . crisp language and smart plotting make Perfect Little World immensely likable and absolutely enjoyable.
GQ
The author of The Family Fang invents another unusual family structure for his sweet and thoroughly satisfying second novel…Wilson grounds his premise in credible human motivations and behavior, resulting in a memorable cast of characters. He uses his intriguing premise to explore the meaning of family and the limits of rational decision making.
Publisher's Weekly
Wilson resisted sensationalism and apocalyptic tropes. Instead, he’s written something quite genuine and powerful. Unexpectedly, I was moved.
