"10:00 a.m. The principal of Opportunity 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 a.m. The auditorium doors won't open.

10:05 a.m. Someone starts shooting.

Told from four different perspectives over the span of fifty-four harrowing minutes, terror reigns as one student’s calculated revenge turns into the ultimate game of survival. " - From Goodreads

Will you like it?
This book.  So many strong emotions.  So many brutal moments.  I wish I would have found out more about each of the characters.  It was a pretty short book, so there would have been enough space to delve into the backgrounds more.  I especially wanted to know more about the shooter, and maybe even have a chapter with his point-of-view so that we could get a sense of how he worked.  This had a lot of violence, so this isn't a book for those who are sensitive to it.

Disclosure: I borrowed a copy of this book from my local library.
