by Ellen Hopkins


Overview - "Fall's most provocative YA read." --Entertainment Weekly

A New York Times bestseller.

Someone will shoot. And someone will die.

A compelling and complex novel about gun violence and white supremacy from #1 New York Times bestselling author Ellen Hopkins.

People kill people. Guns just make it easier.

A gun is sold in the classifieds after killing a spouse, bought by a teenager for needed protection. But which was it? Each has the incentive to pick up a gun, to fire it. Was it Rand or Cami, married teenagers with a young son? Was it Silas or Ashlyn, members of a white supremacist youth organization? Daniel, who fears retaliation because of his race, who possessively clings to Grace, the love of his life? Or Noelle, who lost everything after a devastating accident, and has sunk quietly into depression?

One tense week brings all six people into close contact in a town wrought with political and personal tensions. Someone will fire. And someone will die. But who?
