The Tidal Zone
An ordinary family in the UK, stay at home dad, hard-working GP mother and two kids at school. But then the elder daughter has a rare anaphylactic shock episode and stops breathing for a few minutes on the school playing field. CPR, ambulance, hospital and then recovery, but then the family has to come to terms with the fact that it could happen again, and no-one knows what triggered it.
Very good, emotional and moving. Nice to read about a stay at home dad. This was shortlisted for the Welcome Prize and I thought it was much better than the winner.
