The exclusive story behind the Parkland, Florida, shooting and the survivors' campaign for gun control that caught the world's attention.
This time it was different. The uprising had begun.
When Dave Cullen went to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in the wake of the shootings, he saw something radically different from what he had witnessed anywhere else in his 20 years covering the mass shootings epidemic.
A handful of remarkable survivors seized control of their story, galvanised a nation and built a movement to capture its energy at lightning speed. Parkland is Cullen's intimate account of the birth of a movement and its stunning metamorphosis in the wake of the tragedy that ignited a revolution.
The Parkland kids had a bold vision: they recognised their white, suburban privilege and fused their uprising with young black activists to combat gun violence towards kids of every colour.
With unrivalled access granted by these students and their families, extensively researched and beautifully told, Parkland is a testament to change and a perceptive examination of this pivotal moment in American culture.
