One of the four is murdered and another is arrested in the case. A third earns Hannah’s trust only to betray her, and the fourth becomes her unexpected ally. Nothing makes sense until the day a gun comes into the school.“An interesting read and a study on the state of today’s schools . . . 335 pages of twists and turns and story lines that could be ripped from the headlines of any national newscast, from a teacher having inappropriate relationships with teens to a student bringing a handgun to school . . . Gilmore sets the framework to address and explain trends in public education . . . keeps the story moving quickly and squeezes debatable issues like teenage drug use into the cracks of a fast-moving plot. It is a commendable first effort.”·The Jackson Hole News “Gilmore does an excellent job of taking us into the world of high-school journalism. As the class examines school violence, drugs, and freedom of the press, we get a good look at the San Diego setting as well as the problems of modern high schools.”·Heartland Review
