Told from four different perspectives over the span of fifty-four harrowing minutes, terror reigns as one student’s calculated revenge turns into the ultimate game of survival.
My Review: Where to begin with this book? This book is a very rough subject… it involves school shootings which sadly is a part of life in America now. I am not going to get into the politics or anything like that but I will say this book is very interesting as it takes the politics out of it and tells the story from different point of views.
I found the POV from the sister and the ex girlfriend the most compelling. I will say at first I though the story had too many POVs but in the end it worked out and I understand why the author did what she did.
This story is going to toy with your emotions and dare I say make you look at school shooters with new perspective. (NO I AM NOT DEFENDING) I am just saying it will give you perspective. I think this is a book that should be read as it will touch you in some way.
I simply could not put this book down. IT was that good.
