Waiting on Wednesday #1 - This is Where it Ends

Waiting on Wednesday



"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.

This week's pick is:

 Title: This is Where it Ends
Author: Marieke Nijkamp
ISBN: 9781492622468
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Publication Date: January 5, 2016

From Barnes and Noble:

10:00 a.m.
The principal of Opportunity, Alabama's high school finishes her speech, welcoming the entire student body to a new semester and encouraging them to excel and achieve.
10:02 a.m.
The students get up to leave the auditorium for their next class.
10:03
The auditorium doors won't open.
10:05
Someone starts shooting.
Told over the span of 54 harrowing minutes from four different perspectives, terror reigns as one student's calculated revenge turns into the ultimate game of survival.

Why this is on my list:

As depressing, and weird as it is, I have an unending want to read every book I can find which deals with school shootings.  Jodi Picoult's Nineteen Minutes and Dave Cullen's Columbine are two books I can, and have, reread multiple times.  So, when I first heard about Nijkamp's This is Where it Ends, I knew it had to be added to my TBR list.

I'll balance out this week's pick by sharing a super fluffy, feel good novel I'm eager to read. :P
