I chose this audiobook as I was recommended Imogen Church as the narrator.
Lizzie Riley, newly divorced from husband, had procured the admission for her son Tom in a new school which had fences and padlocks and parents not albeing allowed inside. Tom started coming home covered in bruises. What was happening in that school?
My first book by author Suzy K Quinn, the story was a slow start with POV of different characters. Being an audiobook, I had nothing visually anchoring me to the read. So it was a slower journey to complete the book.
The plot line gave me Izzie, her mother, and social worker Kate’s POV, along with different timelines. Imogen’s voice followed the author’s plot to a T with different expressions and inflections in the tone to make me feel as if I were a part of the story.
I couldn’t guess the ending, it was unexpected. I didn’t have time to come up with my own theories as I was busy training my brain to just listen to the voice. My niggles too popped up. The story was very slow, and the voice sound kept increasing and decreasing in different chapters so I kept scrambling to increase and decrease the volume. Not sure if the quality of the audiobook was bad.
Overall, for my first audiobook, I had a fun time with it. Quite enjoyable.
I downloaded an audiobook from an online retail, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

School should have been the safest place…
For Lizzie Riley, switching her six-year-old son Tom to the local academy school marks a fresh start, post-divorce. With its excellent reputation, Lizzie knows it’ll be a safe space away from home.
But there’s something strange happening at school. Parents are forbidden from entering the grounds, and there are bars across the classroom windows.
Why is Tom coming home exhausted, unable to remember his day? What are the strange marks on his arm? And why do the children seem afraid to talk?
Lizzie is descending into every parent’s worst nightmare: her little boy is in danger. But will she be able to protect him before it’s too late?
