Will You Survive This Next Read?

Will You Survive This Next Read?

On December 14th, 2023, the Book Club will be hosting its third meeting of this year in room 325. The book choice for this month is Five Surivie by Holly Jackson. The GoodReads description states:

“The brand new unmissable crime thriller from Holly Jackson, best-selling, award-winning author of the Good Girl’s Guide to Murder trilogy.

Eight hours.

Six friends.

One sniper . . .

Eighteen year old Red and her friends are on a road trip in an RV, heading to the beach for Spring Break. It’s a long drive but spirits are high. Until the RV breaks down in the middle of nowhere. There’s no mobile phone reception and nobody around to help. And as the wheels are shot out, one by one, the friends realise that this is no accident. There’s a sniper out there in the dark watching them and he knows exactly who they are. One of the group has a secret that the sniper is willing to kill for.

A game of cat-and-mouse plays out as the group desperately tries to get help and to work out which member of the group is the target. Buried secrets are forced to light in the cramped, claustrophobic setting of the RV, and tensions within the group will reach deadly levels. Not everyone will survive the night.”

There will be snacks for many to enjoy and many discussions about this thrilling mystery. If you have any questions you can ask Amarillys Jones or Miss Singer at: Amarillys Jones and [email protected]
