The Vanishing of Class 3B, by Jackie Kabler

The Vanishing of Class 3B book cover
The kids head off excited on their school trip. But their bus never returns home and the anxious parents await instructions from the kidnappers…
The Vanishing of Class 3B is a psychological thriller that plays to every parent’s worst fears.
As both a parent and a teaching assistant, I was instantly drawn into the plot. 10 children and 4 school staff go missing on the way home from a school trip. Their families nervously wait for more information but is is clear that almost all of them are hiding secrets. The kidnappers finally make contact and demand that one person pays for their secret, but who…?
The book is written from various thrid person viewpoints, including the parents, police and later the missing children and staff. This allows us to see the fear and pressure that various characters are experiencing. Several of the parents have secrets but who is the kidnapper referring to? I found it a little confusing as there were different secrets hinted at and it was tricky to track which ones were acting suspiciously.
The plot doesn’t move too quickly, indeed it is days before the kidnappers make contact. This stretched my credulity a little. There are elements of police procedure as we see the investigation unfold. But it is the emotional connection to the parent characters that maintained my interest in the plot developments.
The Vanishing of Class 3B had a gripping premise.

The Vanishing of Class 3B
One spring morning, a bus full of children and their teachers from a Cotswolds primary school head off on a much-anticipated day trip.
But as night falls and the well-heeled parents – one or two of them famous, as well as wealthy – wait at the school to collect their weary offspring, it soon becomes clear that something has gone very wrong.
The children and their teachers simply do not come back.
What’s happened doesn’t seem possible.
How can an entire class of children simply vanish?
