This is Where it Ends is the type of book that pulls you in from the start. The story is told over the fifty-four minutes of a high school massacre! It's told from the perspective of four different high school students, all connected in some way or another. Tomas is breaking into the principal's office, Claire is at track practice, and Autumn and Sylvia are sitting in the auditorium, listening to the principal's famous welcome back speech when the shooting starts. This story is heart-wrenching and a great coming of age story!
Minutes after the principal of Opportunity High School in Alabama finishes her speech welcoming the student body to a new semester, they discover that the auditorium doors will not open and someone starts shooting as four teens, each with a personal reason to fear the shooter, tell the tale from separate perspectives.
