I'm not going to explain the plot of this novel. You can find that in many places. I only want to say that it is dedicated to the memory of Cassie, Steven, Corey, Kelly, Matthew, Dan, Daniel, Rachel, Isaiah, John, Lauren, Kyle and William, victims of the horrific events at Columbine. If you don't know what that means, do a search. If you're interested in the topic and you're not frightened, read this novel. You might say, life is like that; it's only a matter of chance or luck that this hasn't happened in your school. Or that such things only occur in other countries, in another world. Other people's errors can be condemned and we can think that certain people are cannon fodder, and there's nothing to be done about it. Or we can do something to stop it happening again. Or at least not so often. It's up to you.
