Talking Books Book Club: Snap

Talking Books Book Club from uLibrary has a great new title for March, Snap by Belinda Bauer. Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize, Snap is a genre-defying novel that shows the lifetime's fallout from the decision of a moment.

Snap by Belinda Bauer

Snap decisions can be fatal...

On a stifling summer’s day, eleven-year-old Jack and his two sisters sit in their broken-down car, waiting for their mother to come back and rescue them. Jack’s in charge, she said. I won’t be long. But she never comes back. Three years later, mum-to-be Catherine wakes to find a knife beside her bed, and a note that says: I could have killed you. Meanwhile Jack is still in charge - of his sisters, of supporting them all, of making sure nobody knows they’re alone in the house, and - quite suddenly - of finding out the truth about what happened to his mother. But the truth can be a dangerous thing.
