This is Where it Ends Book Review

This Is Where It Ends - Marieke Nijkamp

This was a quick read and it has a lot of potential. But overall its an exhausting book and gets a bit tiring. As school shootings are a big topic in today's society I was looking forward to reading this one. But, its lacked depth and ended up being one action scene after another without much thought. 


Several students arrive at school ready for a typical day. But then they soon realize they are locked in the auditorium with a boy named, Tyler, a boy they all once knew. And he has a gun and isn't afraid to use it. 


I liked some of the characters. Everyone seemed a bit too heroic for me by the end, and some a bit too victimized as well. Autumn's and Tyler's brotherly sisterly relationship could have been done much better. 


In other words, an okay book that isn't terrible but has so much more potential to be better.
