Join our regular Book Club for an online discussion of Suzanne Redfearn's In An Instant.

Life is over in an instant for sixteen-year-old Finn Miller when a devastating car accident tumbles her and ten others over the side of a mountain. Suspended between worlds, she watches helplessly as those she loves struggle to survive. Impossible choices are made, decisions that leave the survivors tormented with grief and regret. Unable to let go, Finn keeps vigil as they struggle to reclaim their shattered lives. Jack, her father, who seeks vengeance against the one person he can blame other than himself; her best friend, Mo, who bravely searches for the truth as the story of their survival is rewritten; her sister Chloe, who knows Finn lingers and yearns to join her; and her mother, Ann, who saved them all but is haunted by her decisions. Finn needs to move on, but how can she with her family still in pieces?

Content note: This book contains themes of car crash, grief and suicidal thoughts.

Our Book Club is open to all current and former students and staff of Loughborough University. We typically meet every six weeks to discuss a book chosen by our members. These are usually, but not always, novels.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions we are currently meeting virtually, with a group video call and a forum on Good Reads. Members are welcome to contribute through one or both of these. If you would like to join the video call then please email David Bell ( at least 24 hours in advance and you will be sent the access details for the meeting. If you are already on the mailing list for the Book Club then you will be sent the details by email automatically.
