Teen Review – This Is Where It Ends

This Is Where It Ends by Marilee Nijkamp

Reviewed by Emily Brenner

This Is Where It Ends is a suspenseful and riveting novel that takes place at a small-town high school in the midst of a school shooting. In each chapter, four relative students in four different situations around the school tell their story and each find a way to get out or try and stop the shooter. The story takes place over an hour long time period, making it hard for readers to put the book down and leaving them desperate for answers. The author, Marilee Nijkamp, uses heart-wrenching characters as well as fear, trust, and heroism, leaving everyone awe-struck and broken-hearted. I would recommend this book because the compelling story line really makes you question our society today and leaves you thinking about the book long after you’re finished. The characters are easy to fall in love with as well. If you enjoy a chilling, hair-raising novel packed with courage and strength, you won’t be able to put this one down. While Nijkamp currently doesn’t have any other books out, Feral Youth—a similar story of survival—is expected to be released in the fall of 2017 and Before I Let Go—also a similar novel by Nijkamp—will be released at the beginning of 2018.
