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

A funny, poignant and whimsical look at dysfunctional families and breaking societal conventions.
Stellar . . . Compelling . . . Realer and wiser and sadder and eventually reassuring about human nature than dozens of other novels.
Kevin Wilson knows how to construct a story ... It's a novel to keep reading for old-fashioned reasons – because it's a good story, and you need to know what happens. But you also keep reading becuase you want to know what a good family is. Everyone wants to know that.
