“An audacious debut novel.”

– THE NEW YORK TIMES

“It was a brave decision by Navin to entrust the telling of such a powerful story to a six-year-old but she pulls it off to perfection. This is the authentic voice of an honest, bright, intelligent, and observant child. It struck me that any of us would be proud to have Zach as their son.”

— RICHARD AND JUDY BOOK CLUB

Only Child tells the story of six-year-old Zach, who survives a deadly shooting in his school by hiding in his classroom closet. In the middle of the raw and devastating aftermath, Zach finds the strength and determination to help the adults in his life rediscover the love and compassion needed to pull them through their darkest hour.

“Only Child triumphs. Zach, at only 6 years old, understands more about the human heart than the broken adults around him. His hope and optimism will have every reader cheering him on, and believing in happy endings even in the face of such tragedy.”
— ANN HOOD, THE WASHINGTON POST
“This hotly anticipated debut novel takes on topics both timely and tragically universal: school shootings, love, loss, forgiveness, and pain.”
— LIZ EGAN AND ELIZABETH LOGAN, GLAMOUR “ALL THE BOOKS WE CAN'T WAIT TO READ IN 2018”
