This Is Where It Ends
by Marieke Nijkamp
Expected publication: January 5th 2016
Published by Sourcebooks Fire

Synopsis:
10:00 a.m.
The principal of Opportunity, Alabama's high school finishes her speech, welcoming the entire student body to a new semester and encouraging them to excel and achieve.

10:02 a.m.
The students get up to leave the auditorium for their next class.

10:03
The auditorium doors won't open.

10:05
Someone starts shooting.

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.

Can I get my hands on this book now, please? I was reading about the Columbine High School shooting last week and I couldn't help all the chills from coming while reading the detailed accounts of the witnesses. It was heartbreaking of course and I try to distance myself from heartbreaking stories, but I'm feeling a bit masochistic about this book and I really, really wanna see how the story plays out.

  1. It's so worth it, believe me. I got to read an eARC and "highly enjoyed" it - this sounds so wrong but it was really, really good and realistic (I imagine). You should get it as soon as possible! ;)

    Here's my WoW! :)

  4. I really want to read this one too, even though I know it's bound to break my heart. I'm a bit masochistic too, I guess. Great pick! Thanks for visiting my blog! Happy reading!

  5. Great pick! I already read this one and it was really good. Difficult at times to read because of how realistic it was and the subject matter. It definitely is one of those books that I don't think I will ever be able to forget. I hope you enjoy it!
