For a group of friends, one mistake changed the course of their lives forever.

In the aftermath of a tragic school shooting, the group must find their own form of justice and a way to begin healing from a wound that just won’t stop hurting.

For them, the lines were drawn.

Right and wrong became blurred.

Friends became enemies.

Told from the perspective of four friends, we learn how one student’s revenge reigned terror over a school and a community — causing secrets to unfold and relationships to be tested.

A personal message to readers:

I wrote it honestly wrote it because being a high schooler is harder now than when I graduated 10 years ago. You have shootings on the regular, you have mental health issues being more on the forefront, and you feel more lost than normal.
