The idea of In My Mailbox is to bring books to the attention of our blog readers and to encourage interaction with other bloggers.
I found this author last year, Sam Hayes, her Thriller Suspense novel Tell-Tale was one of my favourites last year, so I ordered more. :-)
A tense and powerful emotional thriller from Sam Hayes that asks: Do we ever really know our children?
'What would you do if your teenage son was stabbed to death at school?' That's a question chat-show host Carrie Kent can well imagine posing to any one of her studio guests.

It's a million miles away from her perfect, polished existence. But when she gets a call to say that her beloved son Max has been murdered, Carrie and her ex-husband Brody will have to enter a world of poverty, fear and violence if they want to find out what really happened. And when the shocking truth is finally revealed, will they be able to live with it...?

Also, I won books from Book Quoter :-)
I wanted to read this in order to understand why this was banned and so many bloggers loved it, its ok so far, definitely for fans of YA which I'm not.
I also wanted a Jo Nesbo, my 4 year old laughs at the cover :-) Can you imagine when she can read Fart, lol
