This Is Where It Ends; Marieke Nijkamp

This Is Where It EndsThis Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A very difficult book to read, and one I'd only advise reading if We Need To Talk About Kevin, The Hate List and Finding Jake are your cup of Earl Grey; for many adults I know, that's not the case and for teens, reading about a school shooting strikes too close to home. While the multiple narrators made sense, the lack of hearing from Tyler was a little problematic for me since it gave everyone else an opportunity to speak for him without giving him a voice. There were far too many secrets each narrator held and sometimes those seemed to be added just for dramatic reasons rather than being necessary or organic to the plot.
