Goodreads: 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.
Ope’s Opinion: When you start this book ( which you should right now! ) make sure you have enough uninterupted time to finish it. You will not want to stop reading. Also, take a very large breath because you won’t breathe again until the very end.
In the beginning you will be introduce to may characters and their relationships to each other. Seeing the event from many of these characters perspective moved the story along. These relationships are the center to this story.
I will be looking for more books from Marieke Nijkamp.
