Master Class

Master Class by Christina Dalcher is set in the future in a time when a child’s potential is determined by their Q score, a standardized measure including test scores, behavior, etc. If you do well, you attend a silver school. Have a low score, you are shipped off to a yellow boarding school. The main character is Elena Fairchild, a silver school teacher whose husband helps to run this system. They have a silver school daughter and one who isn’t going to make it. It’s a rather alarming book, but a quick read, however, there were some holes in the plot that didn’t make sense and overall, while I enjoyed it, I was left with questions. It’s like Handsmaids Tale, but not as well executed.
