In July 2015 one very special ARC of THIS IS WHERE IT ENDS went on tour in the UK. Marieke kindly donated it for the bloggers and authors who signed up and it began its journey at YALC.
Below are some of the highlights:
You can follow the journey so far (there is more to come) on Storify by clicking on the link here.
The principal of Opportunity, Alabama’s high school finishes her speech, welcoming the entire student body to a new semester and encouraging them to excel and achieve.
The students get up to leave the auditorium for their next class.
The auditorium doors won’t open.
Someone starts shooting.
Told over the span of 54 harrowing minutes from four different perspectives, terror reigns as one student’s calculated revenge turns into the ultimate game of survival.
