Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 August #1
    When a Portland, Oregon, mall is attacked by multiple armed shooters, six teenagers end up hiding behind a store's security shutter, and 17-year old Miranda, addicted to Oxy, finds herself their unlikely leader. Henry's vivid portrayal of the all-too-relevant issue of active shooters will have many readers riveted—and sadly doubles as relevant training for possible steps to take to survive a shooting incident. Although character development is somewhat limited, with members of the large cast being primarily defined by their ethnicity, religion, substance abuse, or other "issue," the swift pacing and short chapters (which supply a minute-by-minute chronology) create a breathless, suspenseful read. As the disparate group of teens struggles to evade, escape, and subdue the killers, bonds are formed. It is both believable and heartwarming to see characters move beyond prejudice in order to aid one another. A map of the mall precedes the text, providing context for the very specific action. The title alone will grab readers, and the content feels chillingly real. Grades 8-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
