Don’t Tell Teacher by Suzy K Quinn is a totally gripping contemporary psychological read that I just could not put down. I read it with heart racing to the conclusion. It truly was marvelous.
Suzy K Quinn created an eclectic mix of characters, all unique with their individual personalities. The action is seen from various points of view as it alternates between present day and recent past.
How well do we know people? Do we really know what goes on behind closed doors? Can you spot the truth from the lies? These are all questions raised by the novel.
The reader enters the world of social workers and troubled children. The latter need lots of help and the former are over loaded with paperwork. We see the effect of this on the staff. For some, all paperwork must be completed. For others, it is children first. “I’d rather help children than tick boxes.” These troubled children took up residence in my heart.
Suzy K Quinn has created a first class storyline that is believable and absorbing. As I read towards the conclusion I found my agitation rising as I prayed for a good outcome! I didn’t just read this book, I ‘lived’ it.
Don’t Tell Teacher is absolutely marvelous. I needed to unwind from the action and grab a coffee at the end. My emotions were all over the place!
Thank you Suzy K Quinn for an utterly brilliant novel.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
