Description & Features+

Only Child, Rhiannon Navin Hardcover. Opening in the midst of a school lockdown, this stunning debut tells the story of a school shooting and its aftermath from the point of view of a seven-year-old survivor as he helps his family heal.

Squeezed into a coat closet with his classmates and teacher, first grader Zach Taylor can hear gunshots ringing through the halls of his school. Nineteen lives will be taken before the shooting ends. One of those lives will be Andy, Zach's older brother and only sibling. While Zach's family and community grapple with grief and the unanswerable question of "why?", Zach retreats into the security of his brother's closet. In his "super-secret hideout," he loses himself in a world of books and art, and learns how to say goodbye to Andy in his own way. Armed with his new-found understanding, and with the optimism and stubbornness only a child could have, Zach is determined to help the adults in his life rediscover the universal truths of love and compassion needed to pull them through their darkest hour.
     Only Child introduces readers to two remarkable new voices--Zach Taylor, the gentle narrator and author Rhiannon Navin--in a dazzling, tenderhearted debut about life, healing, family, and the exquisite wisdom of children.
