Summary

On a sunny Friday afternoon, beloved teacher Mrs Walker and her eight-year-old son wave goodbye to their friends in the school playground. But they never make it home...

It’s only been a week, but the bright little faces at the picture-perfect school I’ve stepped into have captured my heart. Their big doe eyes, their paint-covered fingers and clinging hugs. They’ve been through so much, with their favourite teacher and classmate still missing...

I’m doing all I can to help them adjust, but I can’t avoid the swirling rumours that say Cate Walker’s charismatic husband, Oliver – our headteacher – is involved in her disappearance. The thought makes me shudder. But the more I find out about Cate, the more I wonder if she was also hiding a terrible secret...

I’m determined to uncover the truth about what really happened. I have to protect these other innocent children from the same fate – it’s my duty as their teacher.

That is, until an anonymous note turns up threatening me if I don’t stop looking. Until my home is broken into while I sleep.

I know the longer I stay here, the more danger I’m in.

But whoever’s trying to scare me doesn’t know who I am – or why I’m really here.

Or just how far I’ll go to protect the people I love...

My first Lauren North but won't be my last.

This was the first audio book I've read. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Great story which kept me guessing right to the end. Beautifully narrated by Emma Woods, who has a real skill for making each character come alive.

I Enjoyed the storytelling . I thought I knew the secret. I was wrong!

I enjoyed the narrators story telling. The characters were well defined. She brought the words to life and i could picture it.

The story was clever. Lots of red herrings. I thought i’d worked out the secret. I hadnt!

I got as far as...

....chapter 12 and seriously I could not go on. I really have no interest in what happened to Kate and Archie - they probably ran off with sheer boredom. I can't for the life of me undertsand why a book has to have so many characters all with apparent secrets, it is so not necessary. It's slow, tedious and just not worth anymore of my time.
