In rural Somerset in the middle of a blizzard, the unthinkable happens: a school is under siege. Children and teachers barricade themselves into classrooms, the library, the theatre. The headmaster lies wounded in the library, unable to help his trapped students and staff. Outside, a police psychiatrist must identify the gunmen, while parents gather desperate for news. In three intense hours, all must find the courage to stand up to evil and save the people they love.
I love a book that you can feel the fear and terror that the characters are feeling. This story made my skin prickle, never knowing what was going to happen next. It is a very tense read about a school and there is a gunman on the loose, the headmaster has been shot and it is up to the school kids to rally round and help their head master. We see how the parents cope when hearing about the children that are being held hostage in the school. Where is the gunman? what are his intentions? there were lots of questions going on in my head , I could never imagine how everyone was feeling and I hope I never have to. I think it shows awareness of this type of situation that does happen in real life.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
