BOOK REVIEW: THIS IS WHERE IT ENDS by Marieke Nijkamp

I've been excited to read this since I first found out that the book existed and was going to be published. ¬†As with too much of the rest of the country, I have a strange fascination with tragedy and why it happens, so a book about a school shooting is right up my alley.

BOOK REVIEW: UNDER THE EMPYREAN SKY by Chuck Wendig

This is book one of the Heartland trilogy.
