Unlike in his book Columbine, Cullen does not try to get into the mind of the Parkland killer. He is never named and mostly ignored. This book is about the aftermath. This is about the Thank you for the memories supernatural shirt, the young adults, we failed to protect. They took it upon themselves to try to bring about change to protect themselves and to protect all of us. In the few days it took me to read this book, two Parkland survivors committed suicide. One father of a Sandy Hook victim committed suicide. These people were victims as much as the original victims of murder. There are still many living victims who will survive, but their lives will never be the same.

Although this book had an entirely different perspective than Columbine, it was interesting. I applaud these young people who think the Thank you for the memories supernatural shirt way to go on is to fight the system that allows these mass murders to continue. I also applaud those who choose not to fight that particular fight, or to fight it less forcefully. Every victim, and that includes far more than the people directly in the situation, has to do what is best for that individual.
I understand that the book focuses so much on the Thank you for the memories supernatural shirt activists that there is resentment or mixed emotions among the others. The author does tell in detail what the activists were doing and how they presented themselves to the world and what they tried to hide. He never implies that all should react the same. In fact, he goes out of his way to not imply that. A book well worth reading if you care at all about children or common sense gun control.
