Caroline Stern is just like any London teenager Except that she lives in a religious sect As a child of ‘The Organization’ her every move – from what she eats to when she talks and whom she’ll marry – is dictated. One of those books discovered totally at random I was always a big fan of The Bill and I was watching a repeat of one of Clara Salaman s big dramatic storylines recently out of idle curiosity I Googled her to see what she d been up to since the series ended I came across a newspaper interview about her upbringing in a new religious organisation and how she d written a novel based on her experienceso I gave it a goThe main character is 38 years old and gradually through a series of flashbacks she tells the story of her traumatic days at school where a rather sadistic and bullying headteacher makes her life a misery Eventually she gets revenge runs away and cuts off all contact with members of the group rebuilding her life with a new identity Running into an old schoolfriend she has to explain her past to her boyfriend and confront some of the things that happenedI found the book uite a gripping read especially the accounts of what happened in the school but both the uality of the writing and aspects of the plot were bit of a mixed bag I thought it jumped around chronologically too much some elements of the plot were a bit predictable and some of the characters weren t hugely convincing Also I m not convinced that you can get through 25 years of modern life without a birth certificate and passport using someone else s name Given the amount of ID checks we face for just about everything I m not buying that Not convinced too much by the ending either but there was uite a lot to enjoy in this especially that experiences aren t universally shared I felt my own schooldays were very damaging and as a result my opinion of my school is extremely negative but there were plenty of people who loved the place hard as that might be to understandNot the greatest novel in the world but certainly worth reading if you come across it
