Product Details


“This is a remarkably assured debut, deftly plotted and with vivid, compelling characters that leapt off the page.  I had no idea where it was going to end up – but I knew I would be satisfied, and I was. I look forward to seeing what Kate Weinberg writes next.”
—Jojo Moyes, author of Me Before You

“A deeply affecting, artfully written, and entirely gripping story. . . . The novel combines the best elements of a crime thriller, a campus novel, a love story and a psychological study. It is always beautifully and surprisingly written, has a perfect sense of plot, and is consistently clever. Weinberg is a major talent.”
—Alain de Botton, author of The Course of Love

“A mesmerizing novel of infatuation and betrayal, reminiscent of Muriel Spark and Donna Tartt. Kate Weinberg makes a stunning debut!”
—Carol Goodman, author of The Lake of Dead Languages and The Night Visitors  

“Weinberg’s gripping and luminous debut, The Truants, lays bare the lengths to which we will go to feel seen, even when this means being blind to the glaring faults of others. At once thrilling and heart breaking, The Truants is a novel that beautifully captures how easy it is to wound those we love and be wounded by them, and the long, anguished road to forgiveness that follows.”
—Meghan MacLean Weir, author of The Book of Essie

“Weinberg weaves intrigue worthy of Agatha Christie–you’ll love getting lost in The Truants‘ web of mystery, desire, and deceit.”
—M. L. Rio, author of If We Were Villains

“One of the best books I have read in… forever. I fell in love with these characters and am still mourning that I don’t get to live in their world anymore. Kate’s writing is like a wickedly brilliant Donna Tartt, Agatha Christie and Liane Moriarty all mixed into one … Nothing but absolutely brilliant from beginning to end.”
Scarlett Curtis

“The Truants teases, seduces and thrills but ultimately it’s about the best kind of love affair – allowing for the freedom to be yourself.” 
Miranda Hart
