Publisher's Summary

A wonderfully compelling novel about the intertwining - and darkly surprising - relationships between the teachers and students at an all-girl prep school, Hummingbirds marks the debut of author Joshua Gaylord, a prep school teacher himself on New York City's Upper East Side.
Spanning a year at the Carmine-Casey School for Girls, this intimate private-school community becomes tempestuous and dangerously incestuous as the rivalries and secrets of teachers and students interact, intersect, and eventually collide. Ultimately, Hummingbirds poses a fascinating question: who are the adults and who are the children?
