The majority of authors who visit Beaumont come to meet and address Years 7 and 8, so it is with great pleasure that welcomed writer Tom Pollock to the school on Thursday 6th December to talk exclusively to our Year 9 students. Tom has written four books for young adults and read from his most recently published novel, White Rabbit, Red Wolf.
The White Rabbit character of the title is Peter Blankman, a teenage Maths genius battling with paranoia and severe anxiety issues. The story ignites when Peter’s mother, a top genetic scientist, is stabbed and his beloved twin sister Bel disappears without a trace. The plot twists and turns breathlessly as Peter finds himself caught up in a web of intrigue, espionage and violence that will test his courage and sanity to the limit. Can Peter’s logical mind and obsession with Maths help him discover the truth?
White Rabbit, Red Wolf is a highly original, fast-paced and often brutal thriller that grabs the reader and throws them into the heart of the action. We were delighted to hear Tom Pollock discuss the book with our Year 9 students.
