Everyone has a reason to fear the boy with the gun.
The principal of Opportunity, Alabama’s high school finishes her speech, welcoming the entire student body to a new semester and encouraging them to excel and achieve.
The students get up to leave the auditorium for their next class.
The auditorium doors won’t open.
Someone starts shooting.
Told from four perspectives over the span of 54 harrowing minutes, terror reigns as one student’s calculated revenge turns into the ultimate game of survival.
I grabbed this one from the new box of books as soon as it came in. Ever since I placed the order I had been waiting on this one….it didn’t disappoint! I literally could not put it down and finished it in record time. It tells the story of a school shooting, which is unfortunately a popular topic these days. The story bounces between four students who are connected to the shooter in one way or another. This was a heartbreaking story with a sad end that you knew had to be coming. It puts the reader right in the middle of an unspeakable terror that we hear about in the news too often. I would recommend this book to EVERYONE…it is not to be missed.
