When I first saw this book on social media I knew that I needed to read it. So when Penguin invited me to read & review it I was really excited.
Once in a while you come across a book that put simply takes your breath away. Here is just that very book.
It’s a brave, raw, explosive read that encapsulates terror, bravery, cowardice
How much damage can happen in 3 hours?? How much carnage can occur? You’d be surprised
2 children who are Syrian refugees are part of the local school in the UK. The headteacher Mathew has been totally supportive and instrumental in both supporting and bring these brothers to the school.
The school is a non conventional that gives children opportunities that previously they may never have had. But can all the children that have attended be helped.
It all starts with something that sounds like a bomb going off in the nearby wood that starts the clock ticking. It suddenly occurs to people that the school is under siege- but by who? What’s the reason behind it?
Such an amazing book that has been written with such thought, detail and pure feeling.
In the current news climate it is a very bold and brave topic to write about but it is a topic that needs to be heard.
I started reading it that I couldn’t put it down. However I have to admit it did cause some disharmony between my husband and I as I was so engrossed in it that I continued to read it through the early hours of the morning . Trust me when I say it was worth it,
Clear your diary and set aside a day or 2 to read this fabulous book. Trust me you will not regret it,
It’s out 6th January 2020.
