What happens when a man with a gun holds a small town’s school hostage? Experience the ordeal through the eyes of several major players in the drama, including:
· Evelyn Oliver, teacher,
· Meg Barrett, police officer,
· Augie Baker, 13-year-old student, and
· Will Thwaite, Augie’s grandfather.While the gunman’s identity (and motive) is kind of a mystery (I figured it out pretty early), the novel also focuses on another aspect of the situation—what if? What if I die without telling my family that I love them? What if someone dies because I didn’t do anything to stop the gunman?
A very quick read.
