"Gripping, frightening, maddening, heart wrenching. This book is all that and more. Told from multiple perspectives, it’s the story of what happens when a teenage girl unwittingly allows her boyfriend access to her school resulting in the shooting deaths of 15 people. It gives us a glimpse into the psyche of all those affected: students, teachers, families, first responders."
"I read THOUGHTS & PRAYERS from start to finish in one sitting"
