I absolutely LOVED this book!!! I’ve been off reading for a while and every book I tried was boring and predictable, then I decided to give this book a chance. I couldn’t believe how fast I read this book. It normally takes me like 3 weeks to read a book but I read this in 4 days! HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking for a good, sad, intriguing, and captivating read!

I read this book in a day. It was so suspenseful and intense and I think that’s what made it such a fast read. This book is so heartbreaking but so worth the read. The writing is phenomenal and I definitely recommend. But read with caution because it’s definitely mature.

This book was so well written. In my experience it made me feel bad for the shooter. I didn’t quite understand how I could feel this way about such a horrible man, but then I figured it out. The way he painted himself out to me was all just manipulation. Through the words I was manipulated to think a certain way. And I think his sister, family, and girlfriend were too. This book is definitely a tear jerker but it’s amazing. It’s actually my favorite book so far.
