    I finished the book last night a little late but I got it read I liked it and I enjoyed the way it was written from several points of view and so true you never know when a person will just snap and want to take people down with him. I loved the teacher's role and i thought she was the best character and so believable. I would like to think all teachers feel that way about their students Yesterday and HS not far from me was on lockdown and one student was stabbed to death and a few others injured..it really shows how this book is not far from the truth and events like this can happen at any time...which is so sad! Here is a link to the news story from yesterday in case any of you are interested: http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?se...cal&id=9235459

    I did read this during the summer. I work at a school and I know how scary it can be.

    This was a quick read for me. I was a bit hesitant about reading it since the story takes place in a school with a gunman but I read it for a book club read. The chapters were really short and switched between five different characters in a 8 hour time frame. Since I have been involved in lockdown drills at school lots of questions came to my mind while reading this what would happen if a real lockdown should really happen? I didn't figure out who the intruder was it was until about a chapter before it was announced. It did keep me reading to the bitter end. I haven't read any of the authors other books but will be checking them out

    Glad you liked it Laura. I work in a school too and have had plenty of lock down drills as well. I keep wondering what the kids are thinking during this drill. It's sad that we have to practice it. We just had a crisis meeting run by the local police liaison and something about the meeting really hit me hard. I think it was when he told us about practicing with preschools and telling them to find the smallest spot and hide and stay quiet. I have 2 four year olds and I almost started crying thinking about my kids in that situation.
