Single mom Kate O’Donnell is living her worst nightmare. Her young daughter, Clara, who has a medical condition that doesn’t allow her to be vaccinated, becomes critically ill when one of her classmates, Lauren-whose family chose not to vaccinate-contracts and spreads the virus. While Lauren has no trouble recovering from the disease, Clara’s condition worsens. With time spent by her daughter’s bedside, Kate loses her job and slides deeper into medical debt. But when another school parent points the blame at Lauren’s mother, Lucy, and the media begins an attack, we see two very different views on parenting and how badly things can spin out of control when all either of these two women wanted was to keep their daughters safe.
Firstly a huge thank you to the hq team for my proof copy.
I have enjoyed melissas books prior to this ,so was highly intrigued to hear she was branching out in a new direction . I was eager and excited to read keep you safe .
My verdict is a huge omg! Just wow this book is definitely one of my top reads of 2017
This is very controversial and will get its readers talking and debating which I think is the beauty of books. For me as a mum it was fascinating and insightful but also as a mum to 2 children on the autistic spectrum this was going to press some buttons .
Incredibly well researched and written .
Fast paced and compelling.
You think you know where this storyline Is going then there’s a huge twist .
Many times I felt I was asking myself what would I do ? How would I feel and react?
Incredible book and I look forward to more in this genre from Melissa .
