Rate this:
TV presenter Carrie Kent can't believe the voice on the end of the phone. Surely it didn't just say that her son - her beloved Max - has been stabbed within his school gates? This sort of thing happens only to the guests on her daily morning chat show. Not to someone like her boy. But when Carrie arrives at the hospital and learns that Max is dead, she is thrown into a nightmare. No one will reveal what really happened and the only witness, a schoolgirl, is refusing to talk. Carrie must enter an unknown world of fear and violence if she wants to find the truth. But will she be able to live with what she discovers?

This is the first book I have read by British author Sam Hayes. The book was well written, and the two young main characters were very believable. The parents of the young man were strongly characterized as people with their own disconnect and inability to parent the young man. The young woman's mother and stepfather were disinterested in her as a person. This book is worth reading to understand the totality of the effects of bullying on an individual.
