Only Child is heart-achingly moving

Only Child is heart-achingly moving

Zach’s story starts on the worst day of his life…

‘We went to school that Tuesday like normal. Not all of us came home …’

In Rhiannon Navin’s Only Child, six-year-old Zach is one of the children at school the day a gunman enters the building and kills 19 people.

While everyone in the close-knit community deals with this tragedy differently, Zach retreats into his secret hideout and loses himself in a world of books and drawings.

But ultimately, he shows the adults in his life the way forward.

Heart-achingly moving, it’s the all-too-real drama of school shootings and families who have to live through the devastation.
