This is Where it Ends Review
10:00 a.m. The principal of Opportunity High School finishes her speech, welcoming the entire student body to a new semester and encouraging them to excel and achieve.
10:02 a.m. The students get up to leave the auditorium for their next class.
10:03 a.m. The auditorium doors won't open.
10:05 a.m. Someone starts shooting.
Told from four different perspectives over the span of fifty-four harrowing minutes, terror reigns as one student’s calculated revenge turns into the ultimate game of survival.
So, this book hit everything that one would want with a novel that has to do with such a difficult subject to talk about much les write about in a novel that was probably went through most likely so many drafts.
Sylv was such an interesting and like the rest of the characters, complex. Her relationship were so unique because when she loves someone she will do whatever she has to, to protect them. Sylv's love for her brother is so interesting, since we don't see the perfect relationship between siblings, but when the time comes they really did show such on amazing connection. Her relationship with Autumn is also something that I hope gets developed into something amazing.
Autumn went through so much crap, that is something that no sane person would want to go through on a day to day bases. It was her brother, Tyler who was the one behind the shooting, so she was put in such a hard place. Family or her classmates, it is something that I would not wish on anybody. When she admit that she loves Slyv and the whole interaction between the two, really should how much she really cares.
Tomas, holy crap. It hurts so much how he gives himself as a pawn to protect his twin sister. He had so many different chances to leave to school and do nothing about the people who are inside the school, but as soon as he realized that Slyv was inside the school he refused to leave without her being with him.
Claire also lost someone close to her during this book, her brother was shot by accident, and she couldn't do anything about it, since she was no where near where he was.
I don't know how Marieke Nijkamp managed to write this book. This is such a sensitive topic and I rise a glass to her for having the guts to share this story.
4.5 out of 5 stars
