This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp was a very interesting book to read. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this book but the subject manner intrigued me so I knew I had to give it a chance. This was an easy read because it is a YA novel so that made it a super quick read which is good because I can squeeze it in between other books. This book was hard to read at times simple because of the subject but even during those times I wanted to keep reading. It reminds me of movies where you want to look away from what is going on but you can’t because you have to know what is going to happen. If you are looking for a different type of book to read I would for recommend this book to you. Please don’t read this book if violence or guns can trigger you.
