BOOK REVIEW KEEP QUIET BY LISA SCOTTOLINE

One decision. One family’s future in ruins.

When Jake Buckman decides to let Ryan, his sixteen-year-old son practice driving home along a deserted street, he has no idea of the deadly consequences.

But in the darkness of night, a runner comes from nowhere and the hit is fatal.

Now Jake and Ryan have two options: admit Ryan’s responsibility … or drive home as though nothing happened. What follows is not a clear-cut hit and run, but a split-second decision by a father who will do anything to protect his son.

How much should a parent sacrifice for their child?

And could any family survive the burden of such a terrible secret?

Thank you to Headline and Bookbridgr for sending me a copy to review .I haven’t read any of this authors previous books so wasn’t sure what to expect .The cover was very enticing .

This book took a while to get into and it wasn’t as gripping as it possibly could have been.

Its set in the dads perspective and it would have been interesting to have read the sons to enable a clearer view of the event.

It does make you think and question what would you do as a parent in that situation and how far we go to protect our children

There are twists and turns and the family life is not all it seems to be .

I enjoyed the ending and the way the story played out .At times it felt there were bits not explained properly making me a bit confused .

It was interesting to read a story based on mainly the sons and fathers relationship and bond as its usually a mothers relationship looked into.

It does question your values and ideas .

A good read but not as gripping as I would have liked .
