This is Where it Ends by Marieke Nijkamp

This book had been getting a lot of buzz so I wanted to check it out. This was a fast paced read. The topic of a school shooting while beyond tragic has become a sad common theme in todays society. The author did a great job of the fear of the unknown told from four different perspectives dealing with the shooter and the shooting.
