54 minutes. 54 minutes for the world as they know it to open up and swallow them whole. 54 minutes of gut wrenching, soul shattering terror. 54 minutes to survive.
Wow! From the first page I became completely immersed in This Is Where It Ends, a truly terrifying story. Told in a back and forth multi person perspective, this story unfolds around an attack inside a small town high school. As the students closest to the shooter live out the horror first hand, they silently recall everything that has brought them forward in time to this particular point. Hopes, dreams, stolen kisses... Because all of these make up who we are, where we've come from, and where we are going.
Thank you to the author, publisher, and NetGalley for giving me this incredible, "edge of my seat" literary experience.
