mini obc about the book

The Oath THREE JUNIORS A BLOOD OATH A DEADLY OUTCOME 1955. The polished veneer of a boys’ boarding school in Northern England masks a cadre of wickedness. Seniors viciously torment any junior they deem unfit. Jonathan Simon, in his first term is warned that there are three monsters in his dorm; seniors Flicker, Sleeth and Tunk, and that the code of conduct mandates no snitching. Simon befriends two other juniors; pixie-faced Ian Gracey and witty, grossly overweight Arthur Crown. During a cross-country run, the three friends take a short cut and stumble into the cadet rifle range. Corps Sergeant Sleeth puts them through a degrading punishment using human excrement. The three juniors swear a blood oath never to allow another bully to abuse them. Will this oath be their downfall, or will they make it through the school year? Snitching could have serious consequences but keeping silent will break their blood oath. As Simon, Gracey and Crown try to survive this perilous journey, the constant threat of harm brings their friendship ever closer…

The first thing that grabbed me was the cover, eerie yet eye catching!

Any school can be cruel but this one sounds brutal!! The story grabbed me as I was thrown into the boys school life and the story took on a darker side. The characters took on a life of their own in my mind and I was eager to know more. The darker side of the story had me welling up at times 😦

Definitely a read I would recommend to my friends.

The child within me was ecstatic to read this book, the cover drew me in like a moth to a flame, beautiful!
It’s a lovely book with characters I’d expect to see, Faeries, elves, and witches etc. The storyline was great, and covered topics of friendship, adventure and a little bit of love.
Tonya is a brilliant story teller and brought my imagination to life with her words, this will definitely be a winner in the eyes of children who adore the magical world.
A very sweet tale with all the magic that you can handle, and with loveable characters along the way. With just over 150 pages it’s long enough for the story to progress, yet short enough to keep the younger readers interested and still reading (myself, I wished for more pages, you just can’t win lol).
