Recommended to Alex by: Kathryn
Wow. This book was really something. It's very touching and eye-opening. It makes you think, "What would I do in that situation?" and "What am I living for?" This book is also full of religion. I didn't think I would like it at first but it was actually very good. I liked how it incorporated God into it as a major part and in a positive light, unlike most entertainment today. Pick this book up when you get a chance. It's definitely worth a try.

Recommends it for: young christian teens, youth groups

I bought this on clearance from a website, didn't know much about it. Read it in a couple of hours. Eh. It was alright but not what I was expecting at all. It is about a high school shooting but more than that, it is a preachy book about accepting God. Very preachy. The writing style wasn't my favourite and it read as a young high school novel. But over all, decent enough for a quick read.

Pretty much a fictionalized account of the Columbine tragedy. Not very well written, but worth reading anyway. The story is quite powerful, characters are interesting. Could have used some editing.

This is an excellent series for teenage Christians. I read this book so many times when I was twelve, and it made such an impression on me that I tried to write my own book about a school shooting, titled "Saving Lesley". But...the less said about that little book, the better! I didn't enjoy the other books in the series quite as much as this one, but I think it helped me to understand the situation at Columbine, which is probably why I enjoyed it so much. These books are surprisingly unheard of ...more

I loved this book! It had me in tears. That is how good it was!

I loved this book, but it made me depressed. I cried for days after I read this, and I just can't bring myself to read it again. The author makes his characters believable and though I was confused about who the shooters was until the 3rd or 4th chapter before it ended, it was beautiful. And I thought it was funny when the MC shared his video because everyone was clowning him.
The plus side? It did make me think about faith and devotion.

The negative side? I found the treatment of the entire situation incredibly simplistic. The characters didn't feel complex, nor did the transformations feel organic.
