“The Wrong Family is your new obsession. It’s full of twists you’ll never see coming and you’ll be breathless until the end. Trust me: you’ve never read anything like this.” (Number one New York Times best-selling author, Colleen Hoover)
“So, those sounds they always told me are just the house settling? I’m scared s*tless of them now, thanks to this book. It’s not just a stunning thriller—it’s a force of reflection, as full of empathy and truth as it is shocking twists and turns. Fisher’s bold prose lays bare all our everyday malices: the way we judge other people, justify small evils, and sabotage ourselves with impossible ideals. THE WRONG FAMILY is a mirror—and no one wields a mirror quite like the queen of dark what-ifs: Tarryn Fisher.”–Megan Angelo, author of Followers

“Nothing is as it seems in this twisty new thriller.”–Bustle

“No one writes as authentically as Tarryn Fisher. She is truly a once in a generation writer and The Wrong Family proves that, yet again.” —New York Times bestselling author Anna Todd

“Tarryn Fisher’s Marrow is like no other. Market saturated with romance formula books–Marrow will completely rock your world and make you question the very reason why you became a reader.
