I wanted to like it, but it fizzled out for me

The first few chapters really drew me in, and I couldn't wait to read more of this book. Sadly about a quarter of the way into it, the book just sort of rang hollow and fell flat for me. I kept putting it down and reading other things, then eventually I'd force myself to pick it up and read some more until I finally finished it. In the end, this was just a little too high angst for me.

I did really love Liv's connections with the other survivors from her class, and that it spoke to what it's like to move on in your life (or try to move on) when you are struck by great tragedy. I also appreciated the content around dealing with PTSD, which is especially relevant in today's world where we keep seeing more and more school shootings, so much that they've become the norm.
