Summary

“Fall’s most provocative YA read.” (Entertainment Weekly)

A New York Times best seller.  

Someone will shoot. And someone will die.  

A compelling and complex novel about gun violence and white supremacy from number one New York Times best-selling author Ellen Hopkins.  

People kill people. Guns just make it easier.  

A gun is sold in the classifieds after killing a spouse, bought by a teenager for needed protection. But which was it? Each has the incentive to pick up a gun, to fire it. Was it Rand or Cami, married teenagers with a young son? Was it Silas or Ashlyn, members of a white supremacist youth organization? Daniel, who fears retaliation because of his race, who possessively clings to Grace, the love of his life? Or Noelle, who lost everything after a devastating accident, and has sunk quietly into depression?  

One tense week brings all six people into close contact in a town wrought with political and personal tensions. Someone will fire. And someone will die. But who?

Love

I love everything Ellen Hopkins does. This is the first one of hers I've listened too. The narrator's performance was phenomenal.

Ellen You've done it again!

I get like a little kid on Christmas when I discover a new book from Ellen Hopkins, honestly one of my all time favorite authors! I've read every single book, & she never disappoints. She actually ceases to amaze me over & over again, This was my first audible listen for an Ellen Hopkins book, if it is at all possible, the narrator brought the characters more to life! I read crank over 12+ years ago & I still to this day, find myself going back & re-reading all her masterpieces. Basically if you haven't had the pleasure to enjoy one of her books, your missing out!

Great story, made me uncomfortable in a good way.

Great story that puts you into the mind of the characters in a way I didn't expect. I was recommended this book by a friend and listened to it without reading the synopsis, I found myself wishing a few times I had. The book truly made me uncomfortable, in the best "makes you think" kind of way. There were a few moments that made me consider stop listening but that was due to my own personal triggers. If you have experienced sexual trauma in your life proceed with caution.
