I received an advanced review copy of this book, which will be released on January 5th, 2016.
(so mark your calendars)
This is the review that I posted on my blog:
(the-bone-breaker.blogspot.com)

Genre - Young Adult
Year Published - forthcoming - 01/05/16
Length - 288 (print) pages
Written by: Marieke Nijkamp

Tagline:
Four Students.
Fifty-Four Minutes.
One boy with a gun.

Rating: 4 Skulls

Plot Summary:
10:00 a. m.
The principal of Opportunity High School, in Alabama, finishes her speech, welcoming the entire student body to a new semester and encouraging them to excel and achieve.
10:02 a. m.
The students get up to leave the auditorium.
10:03 a. m.
The auditorium doors won't open.
10:05 a. m.
Someone starts shooting.

Review:
"This explosive, emotional, page-turning debut about a high school held hostage is told from the perspective of four teens - each with their own reason to fear the boy with the gun."

Taking place from 10:01 a. m. - 10:55 a. m. on the first day of the last semester, this book revolves around four particular students as they face a horrifying reality.
Two of the students (the shooter's sister, Autumn and her girlfriend, Sylv) are trapped within the auditorium.
The other two students (the shooter's ex-girlfriend, Claire and Sylv's brother, Tomás) are outside of the auditorium.

This book is a fast-paced read that will show you how your life could change in a split-second!

I've been shaving my head for 11 years...
I figured this time around, I would grow it out and leave some hair on top.
I probably should have let it grow out a little more first, but it needed to be cut!
We'll see how it goes...

Re-Sharing this for the "end quote" - love it!
 
In honor of July 4th, here's some Thomas Jefferson for you:
For seventeen days, the thirty-three-year-old secluded himself in a rented room in Philadelphia.
On a small, portable desk, he began writing, laying the foundations of this new American government. Unlike every nation before it, this country’s heart would not beat with the blood of royal lines. This would be a nation based on ideals.
It took Thomas Jefferson seventeen days to find the right words. 
Seventeen days of writing and rewriting before he nervously presented his document to John Adams and Benjamin Franklin.

The Declaration of Independence became the greatest decree in Western civilization.

Jefferson could’ve easily taken credit for writing it. But he never bragged about his accomplishment. Even when he was elected president, most Americans never knew he was the author of their independence.

In fact, his authorship didn’t become common knowledge until years later after his death.

Because to Jefferson, the Declaration of Independence was written not just for all of America, but by all of America. It was the manifestation of a new nation and a new mind.

He was merely the messenger. ★
- from Heroes For My Son

"In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock."
—Thomas Jefferson

My all-time favorite independent film is a little-known film called 'Thicker Than Water - The Vampire Diaries: Part 1' - written, directed, edited, and produced by Phil Messerer.
(you can read my review of this film on my blog: the-bone-breaker.blogspot.com - the review is from 01/28/09)

The reason that I mention the above is that shortly after this film was being circulated, along came a television show called "The Vampire Diaries" - absolutely nothing to do with the above mentioned film!

Now, I am sure that I will catch some grief for this, but I picked up the 1st season of the show, a few weeks ago, out of curiosity (not to mention that it was only $3!) and boy, am I glad that I did!
[let the flak begin]

Yes, it is a somewhat moody, teeny-bopper show, (co-created by Kevin Williamson after all) but it has some really good writing!
(I can't remember the last time that I was surprised, multiple times, in a series...)

I am enjoying it and am not ashamed to say it.

Here's to hoping that the rest of the series is just as good, if not better...!

hahahahaha - part of my honest sharing is to spread (what I find to be) good entertainment, that hopefully others will enjoy as well. This show's writing speaks for itself and thus earned the right to be shared.

An extremely unique spiritual journey!
This is the kind of book that makes you think about and evaluate life more thoroughly.
I will definitely be reading more of Rubart's works!

This one does not disappoint!

Yes, but such a stylistic action sequence! :-)

If you have read 'The Shack' then you should definitely enjoy 'Cross Roads'.
(I liked it even better than 'The Shack')

If you haven't read either, both are recommended reads.
