I cried in the very first chapter, and many others. No one could ever imagine what or how something like this could ever happen. After I finished this, I got scared. What if someone being bullied, anyone, would just get up one day and start shooting your very own school. Something likes this can happen and it has. Even though this is fiction. This novel just made you think about it and it was just very disturbing.
The writing was fantastic. The characters acted on how I would of thought they would act after a shooting in a small town, or any town, in other words, they were very real characters. Even though I'm not a big fan of alternating chapters or sections in a chapter, I felt this one was definitely necessary. It wouldn't of been as good as a novel without knowing what was going on in Peter's head and Josie's and Jordan's and Peter's parents, etc. Even though it was a long novel, it was worth it. People, anybody, really, will learn something from this story, no doubt.
