After by Francine Prose

by Sam

Hey, I'm not done with the book, but pretty close anyway! It's just really creepy, it makes the point very strongly that things like school shootings can really happen, it's not just something made up on the news. And that things get pretty freaky afterwards. It reminds me of our school dress code, and the 'Code Red' drills we have to do in case someone ever comes in with a gun. Yes, I think still think it's all pretty stupid, but after reading the book it kind of makes you understand WHY the school's putting you through this crap.

That sounds like an interesting read. I love books that make you think!
