"Superb...[The Teacher] rivets." Publishers Weekly, starred review
A mind-bending, psychological thriller from Freida McFadden, the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Housemaid!
Lesson #1: trust no one
Eve has a good life. She gets up each day, gets a kiss from her husband Nate, and heads off to teach math at the local high school. All is as it should be. Except…
Last year, Caseham High was rocked by a scandal involving a student-teacher affair, with one student, Addie, at its center. But Eve knows there is far more to these ugly rumors than meets the eye.
Addie can't be trusted. She lies. She hurts people. She destroys lives. At least, that's what everyone says.
But nobody knows the real Addie. Nobody knows the secrets that could destroy her. And Addie will do anything to keep it quiet.
From the New York Times bestselling author Freida McFadden comes a story of twisting secrets and long-awaited revenge.

"Told from the alternating viewpoints of Eve and Addie, this dark page-turner from McFadden (“The Housemaid” series) has an unexpected, brilliantly executed twist at the end. It’s a must-read for fans of psychological thrillers." — Library Journal, starred review
"McFadden piles on the secrets and lies, slowly doling out the truth until the explosive conclusion, and then, once the dust has settled, she reveals one more bombshell that changes everything. Give this to fans of Lisa Jewell and Joy Fielding." — Booklist
"The Teacher is a foreboding psychological thriller with cleverly executed twists and turns contrived to keep readers and characters off-kilter and reeling from beginning to end. Author Freida McFadden has honed her craft to near perfection, especially when it comes to those last minute, final page shockers no one sees coming. In that aspect, The Teacher is the crème de la crème of psychological thrillers – a masterpiece of illusions with unreliable characters and scandalous over the top twists.
