    This book seems very heavy, but realistic to the horrors that exist in our society.  Whatever the reason, there is no person involved that is without pain.  This cover is beautiful, but simple.  This I appreciate.  A flashy cover would detract from the seriousness of this novel.  I am looking forward to this read tremendously, as there has been a school shooting as well as a mall shooting where I live.  Luckily, I nor anyone I loved was present at either, but on the day of the mall shooting my sister had called hours before telling me how she was going to be visiting there with my niece to get her pictures taken.  Thankfully, something held her back and she was not able to go, but just the thought still haunts me.

    Title:  Silent Alarm
    Author:  Jennifer Banash
    Genre:  YA Contemporary Thriller/Crime
    Number of Pages:  336
    Release Date:  March 10th 2015 by Putnam Juvenile


    Alys’s whole world was comprised of the history project that was due, her upcoming violin audition, being held tightly in the arms of her boyfriend, Ben, and laughing with her best friend, Delilah. At least it was—until she found herself on the wrong end of a shotgun in the school library. Her suburban high school had become one of those places you hear about on the news—a place where some disaffected youth decided to end it all and take as many of his teachers and classmates with him as he could. Except, in this story, that youth was Alys’s own brother, Luke. He killed fifteen others and himself, but spared her—though she’ll never know why.

    Alys’s downward spiral begins instantly, and there seems to be no bottom. A heartbreaking and beautifully told story.
