Hate List by Jennifer Brown (Realeased September 1)

This was an amazing book!

Five months ago, Valerie Leftman's boyfriend, Nick, opened fire on their school cafeteria. Shot trying to stop him, Valerie inadvertently saved the life of a classmate, but was implicated in the shootings because of the list she helped create. A list of people and things she and Nick hated. The list he used to pick his targets. Now, after a summer of seclusion, Val is forced to confront her guilt as she returns to school to complete her senior year. Haunted by the memory of the boyfriend she still loves and navigating rocky relationships with her family, former friends and the girl whose life she saved, Val must come to grips with the tragedy that took place and her role in it, in order to make amends and move on with her life.

This is one of the best books I have read this year. It was a touching novel, that will be and currently is loved by many readers.
While reading this, I was holding back tears. By the end of the book, the tears rolled out.
While some people may be against a book where the topic is a school shooting. But, I personally think this book will help people. Because, sometimes we don't realize what can happen if we make things like a Hate List. It may be a joke (when originally made), but people may take it seriously.
This was an amazing book, truly a must-read. Jennifer Brown is an amazing author.
