This broaches a tough subject….school bombings.
The book starts with the premise of the bombing and tells you that 9 people die, 15 are critically injured, 22 suffer less sever injuries and 1 is blinded.
As the story begins, you follow a few young adults attending Edison High. It is before the bombing and you get to know these students; who is the jock, the student council president, the cheerleader and the trouble maker. As you get to know these characters and grow attached to them, it is always in the back of your mind that the bomb could be going off soon. This fact hangs over you for most of the book and makes it a really interesting read.
Overall, I really enjoyed this thin, quick read. If you can handel this tough topic, pick up this book and let us know what you think!
