How do you put your life back together after the unthinkable happens? How do you cope with what may have been your part in this terrible tragedy? How do you live with your guilt? Your grief? How do you make amends and move on with your life? It is a tough topic, but one that we have seen repeated in the news.
“After every school shooting unleashes a torrent of questions: what if, what next, why me? Val’s in the middle of the storm; her boyfriend pulled the trigger. Now, Val’s drowning in guilt, sadness, and confusion. If you’ve ever been torn up inside and feeling lost, find the time to read Hate List; you’ll love it.” Patrick Jones, author ofThings Change and The Tear Collector
“…This is a startling, powerful, and poignant account of the incidents leading up to, immediately following, and continuing through the teen’s senior year of realization and recovery.” — School Library Journal (starred review) http://www.jenniferbrownya.com/hatelist.htm
