The students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School share their emotional journeys that began on February 14, 2018, and continue today. This revealing and unfiltered look at teens living in the wake of tragedy is a poignant representation of grief, anger, determination, healing, and hope.
The intimate collection includes poetry, eyewitness accounts, letters, speeches, journal entries, drawings, and photographs from the events of February 14 and its aftermath. Full of heartbreaking loss, a rally cry for change, and hope for a safe future, these artistic pieces will inspire readers to reflect on their own lives and the importance of valuing and protecting the ones you love.
Tawney’s Review: The collection of essays, poems, pictures and art were moving. With such a tragedy that had happened at this school and told by survivors some of these stories will wreck you.
It was very eyeopening to read their experience during and after the horrors of that day. What they went through and felt draws a connection for the reader to these survivors. You feel for them. You cry with them. Very powerful words and art by students who should have never been through an experience like this.
Should you read this? Yes! A book every teen or adult should read on a tragedy that brought loud voices to be heard.
