I love this book. It's meaningful and so powerful. So chilling and groundbreaking. I don't understand why people find it boring and meaningless. We are able to see what goes through Tyler’s head, and this should help people realize that we need to be able to empathize with others better and know what they are going through. If we are able to help someone out and know the struggles they are going through, we might have the chance to stop a shooting in advance. The book questions if school shootings can be stopped in advance and explored different reasons as to why someone could result to killing. If we are able to empathize with others and care about others on a stronger, more personal level - and if we treat others kindly (Because people not treating Tyler well was one factor that led to him shooting up the school), we have the power to stop a potential future school shooting. This book should be read at school by everyone, considering how relevant it is nowadays, and it can really inspire people to take a stand outside of their everyday lives. People in school really need to know about the threat school shooting cause and we need to be serious about it. We need to act now, because you can never tell by looking at someone if they are planning to shoot up the school, and you can never tell when a school shooting may happen. A book similar to this one is The Way It Used To Be.
