This Is Where It Ends is a compelling story of an unfortunately all-too familiar situation: a school shooting. It follows four teens who face what is every student’s worst nightmare: a boy with a gun. Told from the student’s perspective, this powerful fictional account is important in its timeliness. At its core, Marieke Nijkamp’s debut young adult novel is a must read, gripping tale from start to finish.
“Told over 54 minutes, This Is Where It Ends is a story of family and vengeance, love and loss,” said author, Marieke Nijkamp. “But to me, above all it’s a story about how even when a world seems to have stopped turning, when everything has fallen apart, the darkness is never absolute. There is always hope. I hope readers will find hope in This Is Where It Ends too”
