We went to school that Tuesday like normal.Not all of us came home . . .Huddled in a cloakroom with his classmates and teacher, six-year-old Zach can hear shots ringing through the corridors of his school.
A gunman has entered the building and, in a matter of minutes, will have taken nineteen lives.In the aftermath of the shooting, the close knit community and its families are devastated. Everyone deals with the tragedy differently.
Zach’s father absents himself; his mother pursues a quest for justice — while Zach retreats into his super-secret hideout and loses himself in a world of books and drawing. Ultimately though, it is Zach who will show the adults in his life the way forward — as, sometimes, only a child can.
This is such a powerful story I could not believe it was a debut novel. It is really gut wrenching but how the author has written it like a child would is exceptional. The writing is very descriptive and really draws you into the story. The story flows really well too. I look forward to the next book by this author.
I won this book in a twitter giveaway.
