A lockdown catches five grade 12 students by surprise and throws them together in the only unlocked room on that empty third floor wing: the boys’ washroom. They sit in silence, judging each other by what they see, by the stories they’ve heard over the years. Stuck here with them–could anything be worse?
NOT A DRILL!! Shooter in the school!
Suddenly, the bathroom doesn’t seem so safe anymore. Especially when they learn that one of them knows more about the shooter than they realized…
This is an awesome book. Sooo incredibly relevant to life. We all hear the sayings telling us to never judge a book by its cover, to not judge people by what we hear about them or what we know about their families. This book makes one see exactly how true those sayings are. This story places four students who would never be friends together during a lockdown. They soon find out that they do have things in common and that even though they may never be “real-real” friends deep down they are really very similar. They also realize that what they believed about the others because of appearances was not necessarily how that person really was. I think everyone should read this book it was just that good.
