The Drop-off and The Pick-up are delightful, laugh-out-loud novels full of charm and warmth. I was so sad to say goodbye to the parents of Baytree Primary and can’t wait to meet them again!’ – Liane Moriarty  

Book overview

Lizzie, Megan and Sam became accidental friends over good coffee, banter and wrong-world jokes at school drop off.

Lizzie is a part-time midwife with four kids and a secret past. Sam is an ex-chef and stay-at-home dad with an absent, high-flying corporate wife. Megan is an ex-model single mum with a thriving online business and no time for loneliness.

None of them have much interest in their school community, but when tragedy deals Baytree Primary’s reputation a potentially crippling blow, this unlikely trio have to step up. Forced out of their respective comfort zones, Lizzie, Megan and Sam learn more about each other, the school and themselves than they thought possible.

And it all begins at The Drop-Off.

‘Funny, familiar, and a bit frightening. This is modern parenting in all its ridiculous non-glory.’ – Danny Katz

‘Anything from these two supremely talented human beings is so welcome!’ – Julia Zemiro

‘A cross between Kitty Flanagan and Liane Moriarty, The Drop-off will make you laugh and cry while reminding us all of the redemptive power of friendship, community and good coffee.’ – Herald Sun
