#ReadHarder: Read a Book By a Southeast Asian Author
This week’s video is sponsored by This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp
10:00 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.
