Big Library Read
From October 13-28, OverDrive's Big Library Read is back with the eBook and audiobook format of This Is Where It Ends, by Marieke Nijkamp.
This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp
Minutes after the principal of Opportunity High School in Alabama finishes her speech welcoming the student body to a new semester, she discovers that the auditorium doors will not open, and someone starts shooting a gun as four teens, each with a personal reason to fear the shooter, tell the tale from separate perspectives.
In Nijkamp's story, the message she shares is even more poignant today than ever, due to campus attacks and other mass shooting around the United States. The subject of gun violence is treated realistically, increasing awareness of the problem for both adults and teens.
During the Big Library Read, the digital version of this book will be available to all library customers to download for free. This is Where it Ends can be read on all major computers and devices. Like all of our eBooks, it will automatically expire at the end of the lending period, so there are never any late fees.
In addition to having a message board where readers can communicate with each other, OverDrive will also have a podcast episode where the author will talk with OverDrive's Professional Book Nerds.
