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…
Firstly a big thank you to hq for my copy to review, but also apologies in my delay . I thought i had already shared my review ! When in actual fact i had scribbled manic noted on phone immensely after finishing. Let me begin…
Wow wow wow what a book..This had a reveal i didnt see coming. Incredibly thought provoking and clevery styled. Completely unpredictable and definitely one of 2019 top reads.Sinister and chilling made this uncomfortable reading at times!
Addictive and i couldn’t put it down , i demand more psychological thrillers from this author.
Highly recommend and be prepared to not be prepared for the truth.
Published 11th July and i wish her every success with this story.
