Find all of my reviews at ’s another book I read nearly a month ago and never reviewed This time it wasn’t because I’m lazy even though I am it’s because I feel bad giving this one a negative review But a negative review is what I must give when I read a book about a “Columbine” type school shooting and This Is Where It Ends was easily my most anticipated YA contained in the BuzzBooks sneak preview I reuested it immediately and was thrilled to receive an advanced copy I love books that push the envelope with respect to subject matter and I figured this was definitely not going to be stereotypical YA fare And while it did deliver a story free of instalove and Mary Sues it had a lot of problems1 Did you know Opportunity Alabama is a real melting pot Yeah no one else does either I’m all for books having a lot diversity when it comes to characters but don’t set it in a town where 80% of the population is white 2 Speaking of the town it’s also small Like under 7000 people Do you really think a single gunman type of school shooting would last for 54 minutes In 2015 Where nearly every child is going to have a cell phone handy and be able to call the local po po 3 Back to the characters Diverse good Multiple narrators with little to no development cardboard cutouts Cardboard cutouts are bad – well mostly Speaking of cardboard cutouts Mitchell would like this for Christmas So bottom line is This Is Where It Ends was a book with a lot of potential and a most excellent cover that wound up being nothing special If you want a YA book about a school shooting that is special check out Jennifer Brown’s Hate List I read that one back before I started reviewing but Rose wrote a real good one ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Thank you NetGalley
