** spoiler alert ** This book is sad, suspenseful, and mysterious all in one. I find it very sad how these boys Garret and Brendan have been tormented there whole life. It's interesting how the whole book is written in quotes from different people had to do with the school shooting. The tormenting made Garret and Brendan crazy. They planned on killing everyone. They were inspired by the Colombine shooting and thought that it was amazing, while everyone else thought of it as a tragedy. They did it during the school dance, while everyone was in the gym. They pointed guns at everyone and made them lie on the ground. They also set up pipe bombs so no one can escape. They planned on killing everyone. They also planned on killing themselves in the end. At first they only shot a few people, but no one died so far. After that, Garret couldn't take it anymore. He just shot himself. In the midst of that commotion, a few kids tackled Brendan and injured him severely. Later, he dies too. So, the only people who died were themselves. But there were a few injured.
