Samenvatting

Young school shooting survivor Zach deals with the tragedy through withdrawing into books and drawing, as his mother pursues a quest for justice and his father absents himself. Circumstances task Zach with showing the adults the way forward. Described by Harlan Coben as 'an outstanding debut'

Addictive and emotional, but also full of hope, Rhiannon Navin's Only Child is the most heartfelt book you'll read this year. When the unthinkable happens, six-year-old Zach is at school. Huddled in a cloakroom with his classmates and teacher, he is too young to understand that life will never be the same again. Afterwards, the once close-knit community is left reeling. Zach's dad retreats. His mum sets out to seek revenge. Zach, scared, lost and confused, disappears into his super-secret hideout to try to make sense of things. Nothing feels right - until he listens to his heart . . . But can he achieve the impossible and remind the grown-ups how to love again? Narrated by Zach, Only Child is full of heart; a real rollercoaster of a read that will stay with you long after you've turned the final page.
