Read full description of the books Accelerated:
Every afternoon Sean Benning picks up his son, Toby, on the marble steps that lead into the prestigious Bradley School. Everything at Bradley is accelerated—3rd graders read at the 6th grade level, they have labs and facilities to rival most universities, and the chess champions are the bullies. A single dad and struggling artist, Sean sticks out like a sore thumb amongst the power-soccer-mom cliques and ladies-who-lunch that congregate on the steps every afternoon. But at least Toby is thriving and getting the best education money can buy. Or is he?
When Sea starts getting pressure from the school to put Toby on medication for ADD, something smells fishy, and it isn't the caviar that was served at last week's PTA meeting. Toby's "issues" in school seem, to Sean, to be nothing more than normal behavior for an eight-year-old boy. But maybe Sean just isn't seeing things clearly, which has been harder and harder to do since Toby's new teacher, Jess, started at Bradley. And the 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 life is higher than he could have ever imagined.
Read information about the authorI'm the Publisher of Soho Press and love my job. I get to read amazing books and bring the ones I love best into the world. I'm thrilled that this October, Pegasus Books will publish my first novel, ACCELERATED, about a father and son and the over-medication of school-age kids in this country. Before Soho, I was on staff at Entertainment Weekly, and my articles have appeared in The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, More magazine, Cosmopolitan and others. I also did a seven-year stint as a screenwriter, during which time I sold a feature and four television pilots (none of which, alas, were ever produced). I look forward to many conversations here on goodreads with other book lovers.
