★★★★☆ New release Tuesday!
At Opportunity High, there is plenty of the usual high school drama. Relationships, fights, and kids with family problems. However, on one fateful day, they have a new problem that none of them saw coming: All of the students and teachers have been locked in the auditorium. With an armed, crazed student.
This Is Where It Ends is told from 4 students’ points of view: Autumn, Sylv, Claire, and Tomás. They are all connected to the shooter, and they are all fighting for their own lives and the lives of their friends and family members in the school.
This book is equal parts terrifying and riveting. In the world we live in, this has unfortunately become a serious threat to us. This book makes you really think about how you treat others, what’s important in your life, and how you would survive a similar situation if it were to happen to you. Marieke Nijkamp has written an important story for the times we live in that should be required reading for every high school student (and really everyone in general).
Thank you to the publisher for giving me a copy in exchange for my honest review.
