it was ok

This isn't a book I'd have chosen for myself, I've just read it for a book group I've just joined and it certainly was thought provoking enough to generate discussion and controversy.

I can't really say I liked this book, it was just ok but it did have me quite gripped once I got into the quite difficult to follow, style of writing.

As the main narrator is a detective investigating a school shooting many of the chapters take the format of police statements as recorded, but it doesn't make it clear whose voice we are listening to and at several points it jumps back into the past without making it clear that's what's happening.

I found this made it pretty difficult to follow.

Combined with the fact that its basically about bullying, it made me quite annoyed that the people being bullied LET themselves become and continue to be victims by such obnoxious characters, in particular the revolting Charlie whose behaviour made me want to get a gun and use it!
