Hey guys! In case you haven’t noticed, I haven’t posted a lot recently and that is because I have been ill! I mean, I’m still ill, but not as ill as I was before. I don’t tend to read when ill, because I don’t really want to have to concentrate that hard, but hopefully I will get back to my book now!! Although, now my son is ill… it’s a never ending circle!! Anyway, here is this weeks pick:

Quad

Quad by C. G. Watson

Published: May 10th 2007 by Razorbill

Everything led up to this moment—, the point when the teasing, the cruelty, the pressure all became too much. And someone finally snapped.

Now six students, from six different cliques, are trapped in the student store while a shooter terrorizes their school. The shooter’s identity is teased out through the students’ flashbacks until the reader breathlessly reaches the final page. It’s only there that he discovers the shocking answer to the question: Who is shooting out in the quad?

This gripping thriller by educator C. G. Watson is inspired by observations made in her own high school. Quad examines in heartrending detail how even the most casual cruelties can tear people apart.

There are always a lot of books that focus on the aftermath of a school shooting, and there are very few that focus on during the shooting and who is actually doing it and why. I found this book after read This is how it Ends by Marie Niejkamp and I am definitely looking forward to getting a copy! Although, I don’t know if I will be able to get one to Germany!! I will have to have a look around! By the way, my link up is still not working!

What books are on your TBR’s? Feel free to leave comments and I will get back to all of you!

    Ohh, I’ve been meaning to read more books that tackle difficult subjects like this. I do have This is How it Ends on my to-read list so maybe if I enjoy that I’ll look into this one as well. I hope you really enjoy it, I’ll be looking forwards to seeing your review as well! 😀
