That's Not What Happened by Kody Keplinger
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
School shootings are an all-too-frequent occurrence, as are the stories about the victims and survivors and their heroic/admirable/spiritual lives. This story about how something misheard, and attempts to correct the record, can go very wrong.
My mind went to some of the things that I've heard about some of the people who have died or saved lives and, well, occasionally I've wondered if we're seeing the real person. That's not to say that anyone is lying about their friend/family member, but in death, sometimes, people ignore or hide the bad or questionable.
Anyway, this could provoke some interesting conversations with students about the events and what they'd do.
