#ReadHarder: Read a Book By a Southeast Asian Author

This week’s video is sponsored by This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp

ThisIsWhereItEnds110:00 am: The principal of Opportunity High School in Alabama finishes her speech, welcoming the entire student body to a new semester and encouraging them to excel and achieve.

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

10:03 am:  The auditorium doors won’t open.

10:05 am:  Someone starts shooting.

This explosive, emotional, page-turning debut about a high school held hostage is told from the perspective of four teens — each with their own reason to fear the boy with the gun.
