9.21am: business as usual on a high street in England. 9.22am: the explosions are heard for miles around, and in the early confusion there is talk of a gas leak, a plane crash, and even terrorism . . . The people of Heathwick had been preparing for Christmas unaware that many would die, and the rest would be transformed for ever. Travel with them, second-by-second, through the hopes, fears, love, worries, gossip, cruelty, kindness and trivia that dominated their final minute before tragedy struck. And in the everyday story of an ordinary street, look for clues to what happened, and why.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is an outstanding novel for mature readers of any age and adds lustre to Updale's established brilliance." -- Keith Gray * The Scotsman *
"This is a very clever and compelling piece of writing." -- Marilyn Brocklehurst * The Bookseller *
"This is high concept stuff... It's a simply brilliant idea and it's perfectly executed: humorously, movingly, excitingly and without any surplus detail or description." -- Adele Geras * Awfully Big Reviews *
"One of the things I love about the children's author Eleanor Updale is that she's impossible to pigeonhole. And now we have The Last Minute, a book utterly unlike its predecessors. This is powerful stuff. What on earth will Eleanor Updale come up with next?" -- Philip Ardagh * Guardian *
"A real achievement ... I found this so compelling that I read this book in one sitting." -- Clare Poole * The Bookseller *
