THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER from Marieke Nijkamp and one of the best realistic fiction young adult books of the decade (Buzzfeed, Paste, Book Riot), This Is Where It Ends is a "gritty, emotional, and suspenseful" (Bustle.com) novel that takes readers inside a heartbreaking fictional school shooting, minute-by-terrifying-minute.

Everyone has a reason to fear the boy with the gun...

10:00 a.m.: The principal of Opportunity, Alabama's high school finishes her speech, welcoming the entire student body to a new semester and encouraging them to excel and achieve.

10:02 a.m.: The students get up to leave the auditorium for their next class.

10:03 a.m.: The auditorium doors won't open.

10:05 a.m.: Someone starts shooting.

Over the course of 54 minutes, four students must confront their greatest hopes, and darkest fears, as they come face-to-face with the boy with the gun. In a world where violence in schools is at an all-time high and school shootings are a horrifyingly common reality for teenagers, This Is Where It Ends is a rallying cry to end the gun violence epidemic for good.
