Read This!: THIS IS WHERE IT ENDS by Marieke Nijkamp

This Is Where It EndsThis Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp

Summary: Told over the span of 54 harrowing minutes from four different perspectives, terror reigns as one student’s calculated revenge turns into the ultimate game of survival.

This was a difficult, heartbreaking read, with a horrifying topic handled with spare grace. It took me a couple of days to recover! I love the way the author shows multiple perspectives of the shooting, drawing us in to the intertwining stories of a diverse group of students undergoing a terrifying ordeal. Sometimes it’s through straightforward narration, sometimes through tweets and texts and blog posts. Hard to read, but rewarding in its reaffirmation of the humanity that ties us all together.

THIS IS WHERE IT ENDS is out now.
