This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp, Sourcebooks Fire, in store now – Review by Larry Yoder
A dark and harrowing story of a high school shooting, told from four different perspectives, including the shooter. Full of suspense as the victims are locked in a hall with the shooter for fifty four minutes. While the book is imaginary there
is almost a documentary feel to the text. Fast paced, with relatable characters. Shows the Shooter’s thoughts and emotions, his limited and faulty view of the world, those of his sister, and other students. There are heroes to be sure but there are no Rambos.
