What can happen in 54 minutes. This is the story of what happened at Opportunity High school in that time span. Told in precise time segments by Claire, Tomas, Autumn, and Sylv, the reader finds terror unfolding as students are welcomed to the new year in the auditorium and then find they can't leave. The shooting begins and each of the four storytellers tell the tale from their point of view. They each have a relationship with the shooter and each relive moments trying to figure out why he snapped and is doing what he is doing. Each student that is shot feels personal to all four of the storytellers. Who will survive?
