‘We went to school that Tuesday like normal. Not all of us came home …’
In Rhiannon Navin’s Only Child, six-year-old Zach is one of the children at school the day a gunman enters the building and kills 19 people.
While everyone in the close-knit community deals with this tragedy differently, Zach retreats into his secret hideout and loses himself in a world of books and drawings.
But ultimately, he shows the adults in his life the way forward.
Heart-achingly moving, it’s the all-too-real drama of school shootings and families who have to live through the devastation. Mantle, R285 (Get It Book Club Price R228)
