A short novel in verse which addresses the issue of gun violence at schools. Andy's a bit of a loner, teased because his father is the janitor at his high school. Blake's another guy with few friends; his claim to fame is the whispered rumor that his locker contains a gun. He and Andy become friends, and Blake shows Andy how to shoot a gun. Andy likes shooting, but is worried that the act is becoming too important to him. He questions his motives in being friends with Blake, and wonders at what point he might tell someone about the gun. A hoped-for romance plays into the plot. A good read for teens struggling to do the right thing while maintaining sometimes fragile relationshipsWas this review helpful?
