What happened while they were sleeping?

A school for the deaf takes an overnight trip to the snowy woods. Five teenagers go to sleep, but only four wake up. Leon is missing, and a teacher’s body is found in the forest…

Sign language interpreter Paige Northwood is brought in to help with interrogations. Everyone at the school has a motive for murder – but they all have an alibi.

As Paige becomes increasingly involved, she suspects there’s something sinister going on. With the clock ticking to find Leon, only one thing is certain: the killer is among them, and ready to strike again…

Travel Guide

Travel down to Scunthorpe for a camping trip with a difference

The school featured in the novel Lincoln School for the Deaf is fictional but it’s somewhere in Scunthorpe. The students go to camp in the woods and there’s plenty of places where you could camp here such as Burton Woods.

The novel looks at the deaf community and what life would be like doing the everyday things never mind going camping in the woods.
