"The Nine uncovers the underbelly of an elite private school, revealing decades-long corruption, while also exposing how the fervent dreams of mothers for their children can shatter families. Jeanne Blasberg delves with unflinching precision into the chasms between parents and children, a novel revelatory for the author’s willingness to scrutinize both mother and son and their stifling bond."
―Randy Susan Meyers, bestselling author of The Widow of Wall Street and Waisted

"The Nine is one of those suspenseful, highly addictive novels that keep you saying, “just one more chapter” until suddenly you’ve stayed up all night to finish it. Hannah and Sam―the tenacious, devoted mother and her humble, endearing son―make an irresistible team as they take on the dark narcissism and systemic exploitation of an elite world that attempts to break them. I love this book’s iconoclastic impulse and its ultimate faith in the values of work over privilege, and love over loyalty."
―Christopher Castellani, author of Leading Men

"Jeanne McWilliams Blasberg’s compelling new novel, The Nine, is a complex and beautifully wrought tale of the sacrifices parents and children make to join the ranks of the elite, and the shocking secrets they find once they get there. It will surely be catnip for book groups―Dead Poets Society crossed with a conspiracy thriller, with a helicopter mom’s midlife crisis thrown in for good measure―and it’ll keep the reader turning pages as fast as she can."
―Holly LeCraw, author of The Swimming Pool and The Half Brother

“...A poignant mother-son drama....In fluid prose, Blasberg combines two tales through two alternating voices.”
Kirkus Reviews

The Nine . . . delivers a tightly plotted tale that taps the vein of secret terror every first-time parent harbors when sending a child on their own into the world. With devastating precision, Blasberg mines the insecurity, the denial, the projected hope, and ambition of a mother singularly devoted to her only child―played against revelations of dark doings at an elite prep school. . . . A painful, beautiful book.”
―Barbara Stark-Nemon, author of Even in Darkness and Hard Cider

“Blasberg moves seamlessly between . . . points of view. . . . A good choice for fans of thoughtful coming-of-age dramas.”
Booklist

“School scandals and the fragile bond between a boy and his mother give The Nine a wide-ranging appeal that extends beyond its ivy-clad setting.”
Clarion Reviews --This text refers to the paperback edition.
