Six teens must band together to survive after a shooting breaks out in this high-stakes thriller by New York Times-bestselling author April Henry.
When a deadly shooting breaks out in a Portland shopping mall, a diverse group of teens ends up trapped behind a store’s security shutter. To her own surprise, seventeen-year-old Miranda finds the others looking to her as their leader. But she’s hiding a big secret―and she’s not the only one. The group has only three choices―run, hide, or fight back. The wrong decision will have fatal consequences.
I had never even heard of April Henry, which is one of my favorite things about TBF, I always find some new favorite authors. I could not set this book down, I kept reading it in between classes at school because I had to know what was going to happen, and I finished it within 24 hours. This book is told from multiple perspectives, which is something I always enjoy. It was super timely with when I read it, because the shooting in Florida happened only two day prior. April made me think about what I would do if I was in these teen's position. One of things I loved most was that each of the teens had a compelling story about what is going on in their lives.
I have never read anything like it, but I would say if you like suspense this would be the prefect book for you.
