Dont Tell Teacher – Suzy K Quinn – Blog Tour 15/7/2019

I’d like to express my thanks to Joe Thomas at HQ Stories for including me on this blog tour and inviting me to read and review the brilliantly written Don’t Tell Teacher by Suzy K Quinn.

School should have been the safest place…

For Lizzie Riley, switching her eight-year-old son Tom to the local academy school marks a fresh start, post-divorce. With its excellent reputation and outstanding results, 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 inside, there are bars across the classroom windows.

Why is Tom coming home exhausted, unable to remember anything about his day? What are the strange marks on his arm? And when Lizzie tries to question the other children, why do they seem afraid to talk?

Tom’s new school might seem picture-perfect. But sometimes appearances can be deceiving…

My Review: Dont Tell Teacher

Lizzie and her son Tom Riley – nee Kinnock are hiding.

From her ex-husband and Tom’s dad – Olly – once a loving, caring man he became dominating, abusive and angry – they had to leave, he hurt Tom and now they’ve moved and are started a new life – a fresh start.

Tom starts a new school, but it’s like a prison with locked gates, CCTV and the strangest headmaster – the unfortunately named (for a teacher) Mr Cockrun – Tom already brings the stigma of being a ‘social services’ child and so brings trouble, as far as Mr. Cockrun is concerned. Tom soon befriends children also with troubles and the same social worker, Kate – which turns out for them is a godsend. As its often the forgotten hardworking social workers that manage to piece together the puzzles that others have tried to avoid.

I love a book with characters you thought you knew, that suddenly throws a total curveballl in the mix and shakes the whole story up into something else entiletly different from how you thought the story was going to end.

A truly brilliant and plausible story line, which I am sure Suzy K Quinn cackled with glee over when she added that fatal blow. A fabulous sun bed read – greatly relevant in todays society and the way the world is made to think about peoples lives and – ‘which side of the town they come from’.

Well done Suzy K Quinn – Loved it !

A superbly written thriller
