Today I am reviewing this amazing      book written by James Goodhand which I was lucky to get approved for by NETGALLEY.

last lesson

It appealed to me due to the concept of a school bombing in the Uk.This was unique as other books on this topic have always been set in America.

I was gripped straight away by all the topics of bullying, mental health, family and friendship issues. It definitely showed the intensity and impact bullies and grief can have on individuals.

The layout of chapters showing you a timeline for the day as well as some back story was easy to follow and added to understanding of how this day had come around.

I definitely felt invested in Ollie as a character and felt his emotions with him. To some extent I expected the ending however there were some parts that surprised me.Overall it was a nice closure especially when bringing together the key people in his life and everyone accepting and showing compassion instead of ignorance.

Thanks for reading, What have you been reading during “Lockdown”?
