How to Be Safe

51E9HBMeGvL._SY346_How to Be Safe by Tom McAllister was on several “Best Summer Reads of 2018” lists. So, when it came to the library, I was excited to grab it. A slim volume, I knocked it out over a day. However, I wish I hadn’t bothered. I didn’t like the main character and the bouncing back from reality to fantasy wasn’t to my liking. The main idea of the story is a high school mass shooting by an unhappy student. Briefly, a suspended teacher is a suspect. It is her point of view from which the story is told. Honestly, other than the topical nature of the premise, I can’t figure why this one made a must-read list. I hope some of the other choices I have put on my own summer TBR list are better!
