Confessions - Kanae Minato, Stephen Snyder ,

Her pupils murdered her daughter, she will have her revenge.........................

That was as much as I need to know about this novel in order for it to engage my interest.

Firstly I would never have come across this book if it wasn't for a friend here on Good reads who's review encouraged me to read this wonderful novel.

I really enjoyed this story of revenge by Japanese writer Kanae Minato and found myself intrigued by the happenings in this Japanese school.
I listened to this book and the chapters are narrated in alternating voices and I enjoyed the narrator very much.

This is a dark and disturbing novel that had lots of unexpected twists and turns to keep the reader interested. The writing is simplistic and yet the author manages to captivate her readers with an imaginative and entertaining plot. I love complex and dislikable characters, so be warned this book is not for readers who are looking for loveable characters.
For a short novel this one really packs a punch and I will recommend this one to many of my friends.

I think readers who enjoyed like [b:Defending Jacob|11367726|Defending Jacob|William Landay|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1329612158s/11367726.jpg|16298550] may enjoy this one.
