The A-list Family by Christina Hopkinson
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Oxford graduate, Anna, gets a job as tutor companion to the only daughter, aged 8, of an ultra-rich celeb couple. She is an actress/fashion guru, he a film maker. The child, Antigone, is exceptionally clever, shunned by her school mates and lives a lonely life. She and Anna become close. This is a sad, cynical tale of moneyed people, of their self-observed, callous life and how uncaring they are about the feelings or welfare of their staff. It has a nice little twist.

If you like Christina Hopkinson you might also like to read books by Niamh Greene, Polly Williams and Jane Costello.
