To vax, or not to vax ... that is the question. It might be a very personal question, but it is one whose answer can have unforeseen consequences for children, as Elizabeth and Bryony discover. From close friends and neighbours in an English village, to adversaries in the court room in a flash, it is a question and moral position that must be defended.
Thought-provoking and compassionate, this is a timely story that grapples with the issue of childhood vaccination, in a page-turning, relatable style. [Larger font]
Quite a controversial book among our group, and a lively discussion. Well worth it, to hear varying opinions. Interesting feedback from both sides of the vaccination debate.
A topical book exploring vaccination. Although we found some of the characters and plot implausible, it was well-written and kept the reader interested. Sides not taken! Generated interesting discussion. Easy to read and hard to put down. Great unexpected twist at the end.
This book was enjoyed by almost all the group. The issues it raises are relevant to today and the characters and narrative technique are engaging. Recommended by most of the group.

We loved this book. The twist in the story was amazing. We also enjoyed the points of view from random characters in the book. Thought provoking.
A very popular read. Lots of great discussion with some varying opinions - everyone should read this!
Well balanced book. Portrayed the husbands sympathetically. Very topical subject and well handled. We all found we had empathy for all the characters regardless of our views.
Great book for discussion, but difficult book to 'get into'. Many characters with difficult names to remember. Wide range of views. Very topical.
Topical, interesting and an easy read.
A light read - good discussion about the story.
