When a horrifying shooting breaks out in a portland mall, 6 teens get trapped behind a stores security shutter. The main character Miranda is the leader of the group. To her own surprise, Miranda finds the others looking to her as their leader. The group has only three choices: Run, hide, or fight back. The wrong decision will have bad consequences. The only thing the group has is common is that they all want to live. But not all of them will survive.
My favorite part of the story was when Parker finally found his sister, after the shooting started, in the candy store closet. He didn't want to tell her what's going on because shes young so he told her to stay put and just to eat all the candy she wanted.
