Mice by Gordon Reece

The Mouse That Roared!

Shelly has been living in a hellish nightmare, first there was her parents divorce and the messy court case that followed, then there was the incident at school that had been building for some time and left her scarred both inside and out. Now after months of suffering Shelly and her mother are finally able to begin to put their lives back together.

Like her mother, Shelly was quite, timid and lacking the courage to stand up for herself, in other words they were both mice. Hidden away from the world in their comfortable little cottage in the country neither thought anything bad could happen to them, they thought they were safe, they thought wrong. One night something happened that change their lives forever

Mice left me with mixed feeling, on the one hand its an incredibly sad story of bullying and harassment and on the other its a shocking tale of murder. It explores the darker side of humanity that tests the limits of how much people are able to endure, whether from their own actions or that of others. But whichever way you read it, it is a thrilling and engrossing story that I highly recommend you read for yourself.
