Om Accelerated

A ';witty, piercingly relevant' novel of a father and son that ';perfectly captures the prep school milieu' of NYC and over- medicated children (Publishers Weekly). Every afternoon Sean Benning picks up his son, Toby, on the marble steps that lead into the prestigiousBradley School. Everything at Bradley is accelerated3rd graders read at the 6th grade level, they have labsand facilities to rival most universities, and the chess champions are the bullies. A single dad and strugglingartist, Sean sticks out like a sore thumb amongst the power-soccer-mom cliques and ladies-who-lunch thatcongregate on the steps every afternoon. But at least Toby is thriving and getting the best education moneycan buy. Or is he? When Sean starts getting pressure from the school to put Toby on medication for ADD, something smellsfishy, and it isn't the caviar that was served at last week's PTA meeting. Toby's '; issues' in school seem, toSean, to be nothing more than normal behavior for an eight-year-old boy. But maybe Sean just isn't seeingthings clearly, which has been harder and harder to do since Toby's new teacher, Jess, started at Bradley. Andthe school has Toby's best interests at heart, right? But what happens when the pressure to not just keep up,but to exceed, takes hold? When things take a tragic turn, Sean realizes that the price of this accelerated lifeis higher than he could have ever imagined.
