WITH NOTHING IN COMMON,
BY AN ACT OF TERRORISM,
CAN’T SURVIVE THE NIGHT
WITHOUT EACH OTHER.
A compelling, thrilling yet heartbreaking book for fans of Elinor Oliphant is Completely Fine, Jennifer Niven and Holly Jackson.
In the unremarkable town of Amberside, the unthinkable has happened: Terrorists have attacked a local festival. No one knows why, and no one knows who the attackers are, but that doesn’t matter. What matters first is survival. And what matters after that is survival, too.
In this brilliantly written account of hope, humour and humanity, five ordinary teenagers are caught up in a truly extraordinary situation. It’s a heart-pounding and gripping account of the fight for survival, told from multiple perspectives, as the attackers prowl the festival grounds.
A book for anyone who needs to see that behind the hate that makes the headlines, there is always love.
My Review; Wow. How do I even begin to review this? I absolutely loved it all! I feel bad that I loved it as much as I did due to the nature of the book being a terrorism attack. It is a brilliant read. Eye opening. Scary. It’s real. It happens. This is the story of how five teenagers survived and coped during and after this attack.
This book had me scared! Holding my breathe I felt like I was right there with them the whole time. When you think its quiet and the shooting has stopped there’s always something else and something bigger. Theres no escape they’re surrounded. They’ve seen the dead. They’ve seen the injured and theyve seen the shooters. It’s a real page turner which I devoured. A story told through each of the characters making it an easy read.
It’s a heartbreaking read but also one full of hope, love, family and friendships. It’s a survival story and the aftermath. The ending shows us how each of the characters coped, the losses of loved ones and the injuries they sustained all very different. Cannot praise this book enough! Highly recommend. A must read. A must buy. A well deserved five stars from me. This is going into my top books of the year.
