Reunion by Jeff Bennington

5 of 5 stars


This book takes a very touchy topic, (violence in schools) and treats it with the utmost respect. I was so incredibly impressed with how all the different sides of the topic were covered.

Although the subject matter is gruesome, the author did an incredible job of not only delving into the lives of the survivors, but the life of the troubled youth. There are no excuses made for the violence or trying to move the blame elsewhere. But Mr Bennington did do an amazing job of pointing out that it's just as much the fault of society for not paying attention, and/or turning a blind eye even when we know that something is wrong.

Too often after the fact people say, Well, he/she was a little odd... Then turns away because nobody wants to get involved.

All in all, I would say this is one of those books that is very much worth the time. There is a little from many different genre's and that's what is so unique.
