This one I decided to go ahead and look at since I realized that it was in verse. I am not really a fan of these. However, some of them are done very well. Well I am sad to say that this one was not. The verse/plot is done in multi POV but each character sounds the same, nothing sets them apart. So unfortunately this one was a DNF for me. The story fell apart around 15% in and nothing made me want to read more.
On a hot summer night in a midwestern town, a high school teenage prank goes horrifically awry. Alcohol, guns, and a dare. Within minutes, as events collide, innocents becomes victims—with tragic outcomes altering lives forever, a grisly and unfortunate scenario all too familiar from current real-life headlines. But victims can also become survivors, and as we come to know each character through his/her own distinctive voice and their interactions with one another, we see how, despite pain and guilt, they can reach out to one another, find a new equilibrium, and survive.
Told through multiple points of view in naturalistic free verse and stream of consciousness, this is an unforgettable, haunting tale.
