SARAH PINBOROUGH 13 Minutes
A stunning, fresh story about life, friendship, bullying and death which will take your breath away. Natasha is smart, attractive and surrounded by close friends. She seems happy. She’s living a normal life . . . right up until a dog walker finds her body in a river one morning and saves her life. Paramedics say she was dead for 13 minutes.

Brilliant characterisation, a simple narrative and an unflinching look at manipulation, relationships and death make this a compelling read.
