Hello Bookworms, here’s another book that’s tackling a heavy topic!
Summary: When a lockdown throws five grade 12 students into a boys washroom together, they all don’t think this day could get any worse. But when they realize the lockdown is not a drill, they begin to panic. When they figure out that one of the students know more about the shooter than any of them, they stop feeling safe in the unlocked washroom. What will happen, is one of the students the shooter? What will they do?
Recommendation: This book kept me guessing, and on the edge of my seat the entire time. I finished this book in under two hours, because of the intensity, and endless plot twists. I loved the different POV’s of the characters, and how each narrators voice was unique. Each character has their own backstory, and are fighting their own wars. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who needs a good read, and wants a book they won’t be able to forget anytime soon .
