Chilling. What does a parent do if your child is a psychopath? Ashley Audrain’s novel titled, The Push, gives readers the opportunity to think about that question. Not long after giving birth to daughter, Violet, protagonist Blythe Connor begins to think there is something wrong. Blythe’s husband, Fox, denies and dismisses her fears and concerns. Readers are left to gape in horror at the consequences of not taking Blythe’s concerns seriously. Audrain captures the overwhelming sorrow that enfolds Blythe as this chilling novel observes Violet’s actions that fulfill her mother’s greatest fears. Parents who read this novel will hug their children longer than usual as a way of thanking them for not being like Violet.
