A powerful tale’ Cosmopolitan ‘Timely’ Kia Abdullah Elena Fairchild is a teacher at one of the state’s new elite schools. Her daughters are exactly like her: beautiful, ambitious, and perfect. A good thing, since the recent mandate that’s swept the country is all about perfection.

Q is a thrilling read’ ...
