It is a beautifully-told story told from multiple perspectives of what happens when bullying gets way out of hand.
There is humor and great, great tragedy in this novel. I don't want to give anything away, but readers should know before they pick this book up that it is about a school shooting. But it's the first YA book I've read that tells the story from the perspective of the shooter's family.
If this topic is too raw right now, make a note to read this book later-it is well worth it.
