I can't believe it!

Heather Gudenkauf has done it again!!

With a story that could be ripped straight from the headlines this book revolves around a gunman and a school.

Told in 5 points of view we get to hear straight from a child, a teacher, a grandfather, a mother/police officer, and another mother.

This story is intense. How would you feel if your child was trapped in a school in a hostage situation? What about your grandchild? What if you were the teacher who was being held hostage? What if there was nothing you could do but watch? What if you had a badge but still couldn't get access to the school?

Set in a sleepy town of Iowa on a cold winter's day this story takes you through it all. From the time the bell rings to the last gunshot. You won't be able to look away!

Darkfallen What is this book about?

Greta is Erikasbuddy Don't know yet. My woman wrote it though and she just released the cover on Facey Space. She's the same person who wrote "The Weight of Silence" and "These Things Hidden".
