About this ebook

In this gripping and emotionally-charged thriller, New York Times bestselling author Heather Gudenkauf shows how all it takes is a single moment to change everything.

In the midst of a sudden spring snowstorm, a man armed with a gun walks into a school.

Officer Meg Barrett holds the responsibility of the children of Broken Branch in her hands. Will Thwaite stands by helplessly and wonders if he has failed his child again. Trapped in her classroom, Evelyn Oliver watches for an opportunity to rescue the children in her care. And thirteen-year-old Augie Baker will risk her own safety to protect her little brother.

As tension mounts with each passing minute, and as the people of Broken Branch race to uncover the identity of the stranger, small acts of fear and courage reveal hidden truths that will alter the town forever.

The part about having nonstop hiccups was interesting, and that's all that was interesting. It would make a great magazine length article but whoever told the author that a book length version was gonna be great was wrong... Seriously wrong. Audiobook note : ok narrator, kinda sleepy.

Don't start unless you want to do nothing but reading til you finish. I am only half way through. I took a quick break and will go right back. This is a good book.

Debated on reading this with the world being what it is but she really roped me in and made me care. Recommended this to my school teacher daughter. A must read.
