Now Sarah's par It's been three years since the Virgil County High School Massacre. Three years since my best friend, Sarah, was ...

    Inspired by the story of Cassie Bernall after Columbine, Keplinger's book is a story about who controls the narrative in the aftermath of tragedy. It's a searing exploration of voice: who has it and who has it taken from them. Lee -- who is asexual -- begins the story three years a...

    Mini review: DNF Trigger Warning: Trauma from school shooting. Up till the point I read. I am a huge fan of Kody Keplinger! When I heard about this book I was so psyched. Unfortunately I didn't enjoy it. Upon starting the book I realized that the story wasn't for me. I did ...

    I liked the approach of this a lot - viewing a school shooting years later to pull apart the truths of it - and the fact that there was this whole friend group created with a unique bond as a result. It was definitely a fast read, too. For me, what didn't work quite as well, which I wa...

    Eh... This was an okay read. Yes, yes, call me cold-hearted for not enjoying a book about the aftermath of a school shooting. The thing is, while the situation itself is very traumatic, the writing didn't make me care about the characters, or what happened to them. To be honest, not...

    What a book. This is one of those books that I?m going to shove in every single person?s face because YOU HAVE TO READ IT. It?s a book that, like I Am Thunder, is so relevant to today?s world that everybody should read it. It?s completely heartbreaking, and I?m not lying...

    Very interesting look at the truth behind a school shooting. Not at the shooter, whose name is never printed and whose motivations are never listed- because it's not about him. (I really liked that.) Instead, this is about the truth of the survivors: how they're doing months/years late...

    Do you remember the story of Cassie Bernall? I bet you do - she is the girl of "she said yes" fame, who was gunned down during the Columbine shooting but is more well-known for professing her devotion to God right before her death. While Columbine is now almost 20 years behind us, scho...

    There seem to be quite a few books about school shootings at the moment but this is probably the first one I've been tempted to read. It's such a difficult topic and I really didn't want to read a book that was going to deal with such a heavy or emotionally charged subject. This howeve...

    I could not put this book down. Going to be one of those books published at the right time, what with the school shootings in America. This book takes a look at the survivor stories and what they have to go through, even 3 years later. A fab read! ...

    Sadly, there is now a YA genre of school shooting books. Kody Keplinger?s That?s Not What Happened is an important addition to that tragic collection. Lee Bauer, Keplinger?s narrator, is a survivor who held the hand of her best friend Sarah as she was shot to death in a school ba...

    I received an ARC of this at BookCon. I almost didn't read it, because the subject felt so heavy, and not like my normal taste in books. But I like Kody Keplinger, and figured I'd give it a try. 1) It's not even really about "a school shooting." It's about what happens to a group of...

    Complicated feelings. I didn't realize this was a Cassie Bernall of Columbine retelling & that felt sort of unoriginal. Also, I didn't like the characters or the way this book felt almost scared to say anything at all. I'd probably give it 2.5 stars if I'm being honest. ...

    A trope that I like to read about is school shootings, being in New Zealand we don't experience it, and I'm sure if I had ever actually experienced one I wouldn't like reading about them as much. In Kody Keplinger's latest read, we experience the aftermath of the shooting. The book is ...

    Inspired by the story of Cassie Bernall after Columbine, Keplinger's book is a story about who controls the narrative in the aftermath of tragedy. It's a searing exploration of voice: who has it and who has it taken from them. Lee -- who is asexual -- begins the story three years a...

    Mini review: DNF Trigger Warning: Trauma from school shooting. Up till the point I read. I am a huge fan of Kody Keplinger! When I heard about this book I was so psyched. Unfortunately I didn't enjoy it. Upon starting the book I realized that the story wasn't for me. I did ...

    Eh... This was an okay read. Yes, yes, call me cold-hearted for not enjoying a book about the aftermath of a school shooting. The thing is, while the situation itself is very traumatic, the writing didn't make me care about the characters, or what happened to them. To be honest, not...

    What a book. This is one of those books that I?m going to shove in every single person?s face because YOU HAVE TO READ IT. It?s a book that, like I Am Thunder, is so relevant to today?s world that everybody should read it. It?s completely heartbreaking, and I?m not lying...

    Very interesting look at the truth behind a school shooting. Not at the shooter, whose name is never printed and whose motivations are never listed- because it's not about him. (I really liked that.) Instead, this is about the truth of the survivors: how they're doing months/years late...

    "That's not what Happened" by: Kody Keplinger is about a Junior named Leanne at Virgil County High School. Virgil County High School is best known for the mass shooting that happened there 3 years ago, where Leanne's best friend Sarah was shot and murdered in the bathroom of the school...

    Do you remember the story of Cassie Bernall? I bet you do - she is the girl of "she said yes" fame, who was gunned down during the Columbine shooting but is more well-known for professing her devotion to God right before her death. While Columbine is now almost 20 years behind us, scho...

    That's Not What Happened es un libro acerca de los sobrevivientes de un tiroteo ocurrido en una escuela pública, en una pequeńa localidad rural. A pesar de que han pasado 3 ańos desde la masacre, los 6 sobrevivientes siguen sufriendo y luchando por superar lo ocurrido. Nunca había...

    There seem to be quite a few books about school shootings at the moment but this is probably the first one I've been tempted to read. It's such a difficult topic and I really didn't want to read a book that was going to deal with such a heavy or emotionally charged subject. This howeve...

    I could not put this book down. Going to be one of those books published at the right time, what with the school shootings in America. This book takes a look at the survivor stories and what they have to go through, even 3 years later. A fab read! ...

    Round up to 4.5 stars. Such an intense and insightful read! ...

    Lee has put together her thoughts, notes, and letters by her and other survivors of a school shooting to fix the media's (and others') narrative of the event. This is an interesting book. It's been a few years since the shooting and the survivors have banded together, united by the ...

    What a book. This is one of those books that I?m going to shove in every single person?s face because YOU HAVE TO READ IT. It?s a book that, like I Am Thunder, is so relevant to today?s world that everybody should read it. It?s completely heartbreaking, and I?m not lying...

    I liked this one for many reasons: First and foremost because of its main topic - the aftermath of a school shooting (more on that in the last paragraph) -, but also because of other issues tackled plus the execution of it all. The story is told by Lee, a girl who survived a school...

    Sadly, there is now a YA genre of school shooting books. Kody Keplinger?s That?s Not What Happened is an important addition to that tragic collection. Lee Bauer, Keplinger?s narrator, is a survivor who held the hand of her best friend Sarah as she was shot to death in a school ba...

    I received an ARC of this at BookCon. I almost didn't read it, because the subject felt so heavy, and not like my normal taste in books. But I like Kody Keplinger, and figured I'd give it a try. 1) It's not even really about "a school shooting." It's about what happens to a group of...

    Complicated feelings. I didn't realize this was a Cassie Bernall of Columbine retelling & that felt sort of unoriginal. Also, I didn't like the characters or the way this book felt almost scared to say anything at all. I'd probably give it 2.5 stars if I'm being honest. ...

    A trope that I like to read about is school shootings, being in New Zealand we don't experience it, and I'm sure if I had ever actually experienced one I wouldn't like reading about them as much. In Kody Keplinger's latest read, we experience the aftermath of the shooting. The book is ...

    Lee has put together her thoughts, notes, and letters by her and other survivors of a school shooting to fix the media's (and others') narrative of the event. This is an interesting book. It's been a few years since the shooting and the survivors have banded together, united by the ...

    What a book. This is one of those books that I?m going to shove in every single person?s face because YOU HAVE TO READ IT. It?s a book that, like I Am Thunder, is so relevant to today?s world that everybody should read it. It?s completely heartbreaking, and I?m not lying...

    Very interesting look at the truth behind a school shooting. Not at the shooter, whose name is never printed and whose motivations are never listed- because it's not about him. (I really liked that.) Instead, this is about the truth of the survivors: how they're doing months/years late...

    "That's not what Happened" by: Kody Keplinger is about a Junior named Leanne at Virgil County High School. Virgil County High School is best known for the mass shooting that happened there 3 years ago, where Leanne's best friend Sarah was shot and murdered in the bathroom of the school...

    Do you remember the story of Cassie Bernall? I bet you do - she is the girl of "she said yes" fame, who was gunned down during the Columbine shooting but is more well-known for professing her devotion to God right before her death. While Columbine is now almost 20 years behind us, scho...

    That's Not What Happened es un libro acerca de los sobrevivientes de un tiroteo ocurrido en una escuela pública, en una pequeńa localidad rural. A pesar de que han pasado 3 ańos desde la masacre, los 6 sobrevivientes siguen sufriendo y luchando por superar lo ocurrido. Nunca había...

    There seem to be quite a few books about school shootings at the moment but this is probably the first one I've been tempted to read. It's such a difficult topic and I really didn't want to read a book that was going to deal with such a heavy or emotionally charged subject. This howeve...

    I could not put this book down. Going to be one of those books published at the right time, what with the school shootings in America. This book takes a look at the survivor stories and what they have to go through, even 3 years later. A fab read! ...

    Inspired by the story of Cassie Bernall after Columbine, Keplinger's book is a story about who controls the narrative in the aftermath of tragedy. It's a searing exploration of voice: who has it and who has it taken from them. Lee -- who is asexual -- begins the story three years a...

    Round up to 4.5 stars. Such an intense and insightful read! ...

    I liked this one for many reasons: First and foremost because of its main topic - the aftermath of a school shooting (more on that in the last paragraph) -, but also because of other issues tackled plus the execution of it all. The story is told by Lee, a girl who survived a school...

    Sadly, there is now a YA genre of school shooting books. Kody Keplinger?s That?s Not What Happened is an important addition to that tragic collection. Lee Bauer, Keplinger?s narrator, is a survivor who held the hand of her best friend Sarah as she was shot to death in a school ba...

    I received an ARC of this at BookCon. I almost didn't read it, because the subject felt so heavy, and not like my normal taste in books. But I like Kody Keplinger, and figured I'd give it a try. 1) It's not even really about "a school shooting." It's about what happens to a group of...

    Complicated feelings. I didn't realize this was a Cassie Bernall of Columbine retelling & that felt sort of unoriginal. Also, I didn't like the characters or the way this book felt almost scared to say anything at all. I'd probably give it 2.5 stars if I'm being honest. ...

    A trope that I like to read about is school shootings, being in New Zealand we don't experience it, and I'm sure if I had ever actually experienced one I wouldn't like reading about them as much. In Kody Keplinger's latest read, we experience the aftermath of the shooting. The book is ...

    Lee has put together her thoughts, notes, and letters by her and other survivors of a school shooting to fix the media's (and others') narrative of the event. This is an interesting book. It's been a few years since the shooting and the survivors have banded together, united by the ...
