Richard and Judy Book Club - Only Child

Heartstopping. Heartbreaking. Heartwarming. Rhiannon Navin's book Only Child is compelling, compassionate and powerful, and follows the story of children going to school on a Tuesday as usual, but not all the children coming home. When the unthinkable happens, six-year-old Zach is at school. Huddled in a cloakroom with his classmates and teacher, he is too young to understand that life will never be the same again. Afterwards, the once close-knit community is left reeling. Zach's dad retreats. His mum sets out to seek revenge. Zach, scared, lost and confused, disappears into his super-secret hideout to try to make sense of things. Nothing feels right - until he listens to his heart...But can he remind the grown-ups how to love again? Narrated by Zach, Only Child is a real roller coaster of a read that will stay with you long after you've turned the final page.

Richard and Judy Book Club - The Cactus

This sparkling debut shows it's never too late to bloom...People aren't sure what to make of Susan Green - family and colleagues find her prickly and hard to understand, but Susan makes perfect sense to herself, and that's all she needs. Age 45, she thinks her life is perfect, as long as she avoids her feckless brother, Edward - a safe distance away in Birmingham. She has a London flat which is ideal for one; a job that suits her passion for logic; and a personal arrangement providing cultural and other, more intimate, benefits. Yet suddenly faced with the loss of her mother and with the possibility of becoming a mother herself, Susan's greatest fear is being realised: she is losing control. When she discovers that her mother's Will favours her brother, Susan sets out to prove that Edward and his equally feckless friend Rob somehow coerced this outcome. But when problems closer to home become increasingly hard to ignore, she finds help in the unlikeliest of places.
