Description

‘Literally blown away! Just when you think nothing can surprise you, I’m still in shock from the twist!’ Netgalley reviewer, 5 stars

___

School should have been the safest place…

For Lizzie Riley, switching her eight-year-old son Tom to the local academy school marks a fresh start, post-divorce. With its excellent reputation and outstanding results, Lizzie knows it’ll be a safe space away from home.

But there's something strange happening at school. Parents are forbidden from entering the grounds and inside, there are bars across the classroom windows.

Why is Tom coming home exhausted, unable to remember anything about his day? What are the strange marks on his arm? And when Lizzie tries to question the other children, why do they seem afraid to talk?

Tom’s new school might seem picture-perfect. But sometimes appearances can be deceiving…

  • 4*; could have been 5* but...

    This was a book I picked up to read a little bit more every time I had even just a few minutes to spare. The short chapters helped make this possible. I finished it in under two days as a result- the mark of a good story for me. The story is told from multiple viewpoints which can be so confusing in some books but that wasn’t too much of a problem for long in this one. The best thing about the book for me was the way the writer managed to keep me guessing, among various possibilities, what was going on until the reveal near the end. On the more negative side, I found much of the school aspect rather confusing and implausible AND it was written totally and unnecessarily in the present tense. That tense can be effective when used in certain ways, like to add immediacy or ramp up tension but it was nothing more than annoying here. Why do writers do it so often these days? I do hope it’s a short lived fad. Personally, I hate it. The story’s plot was strong enough to save it from a much lower star rating from me.

    Brilliant book, not wanting it to finish and hard to put down. I love how it's written in the first person of each character and how with each chapter it leaves you hanging and wanting to know what happens next. A truly immersive read .
