Everyone Has a Reason To Fear a Boy With a Gun



I can honestly say that when it comes to books I’ve fallen pray to the thought that “size matters”, the thought that a truly great book needs to come in this big thick book. So when it comes to “This is where it ends”, I didn’t even begin to prepare for what was to come. I truly underestimated it on so many levels.  To say this book was intense really was an understatement of the century. The meat of the story is told from the perspectives of 4 different students in various parts of the same high school during a School shooting, all with some connection to the shooter. Blog feed litters the pages between chapters giving us a glimps of the world around our 4 main Characters as the world process what is it to have friends and family trappped in a very dangerous and the panic and helplessness one can feel. This book brings to light the thoughts and feeling that cross ones mind when they are faced with the difficult decision, Sit safely on the sideline or, Step up and be the hero… even if its going to cost you your life.

Marieke Nijkamp hit it out of the park on this one. Her grasp of the characters feelings during this massive tragedy make this book an excellent and compelling read from start to finish. This is where it ends is a must read for any and all students and teachers, showing everyone that no matter how big or small, good or bad, our actions really do make a difference in someones life. Everyone has their reasons, what are yours?
