Cannonball Read IV

A bunch of Pajibans reading and reviewing and honoring AlabamaPink.

Petalfrog’s #CBR4 Review #29: One Breath Away by Heather Gudenkauf


One Breath Away utilizes one of the most simple plot points around. An armed gunman takes a school hostage, and the entire small town of Broken Branch gathers to wait for the outcome. The story is told from the point of view of several characters: Augie is 12 years old living with her grandparents while her mother recovers from devastating burns; Will, Augie’s grandfather; Holly, Augie’s mother; Meg, a local police officer whose daughter also attends the school; and Evelyn Oliver, the third-grade teacher whose classroom the gunman has holed up in.

I also got this book through a site, netgalley, that allows you to read unreleased books and review them! They send the books in pdf/galley format for reading on an e-reader. It’s pretty great, and I have gotten 6 books from them so far!
