Inside their picture-perfect homes, the residents of this quiet California suburb are not at all what they seem. Written with the perfect blend of wit and warmth, Playdate is an examination of the bonds that form between parent and child, husband and wife, neighbor and neighbor. A reminder that life (and love) is often messy — and you never really know what’s going on behind the hedges next door.
