Friday Memes: Run, Hide, Fight Back by April Henry

 Happy Friday everybody!

Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City ReaderThe Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

When the shooting begins, among the dozens of people near Fairgate Mall's food court are six teenagers: Miranda Nash, Cole Bond, Javier Ramirez, Parker Gray, Amina Abdi, and Grace Busby.

The only thing they have in common is that they all want to live. But not all of them will survive.
Friday 56: 
Miranda helps him lift his feet onto the chair. All the moving around has loosened the makeshift bandage. "I'm going to tighten this," she says, taking the ends of the sleeves.
This week I am spotlighting Run, Hide, Fight Back by April Henry which was a recent Kindle Daily Deal. Here is the description from Amazon:
Six teens must band together to survive after a shooting breaks out in this high-stakes thriller by New York Times-bestselling author April Henry.

When a deadly shooting breaks out in a Portland shopping mall, a diverse group of teens ends up trapped behind a store’s security shutter. To her own surprise, seventeen-year-old Miranda finds the others looking to her as their leader. But she’s hiding a big secret—and she’s not the only one. The group has only three choices: Run, hide, or fight back. The wrong decision will have fatal consequences.

In her masterful style, April Henry crafts an unrelenting thriller with empowering teen heroes. For fans of the breakout YA mysteries This Is Where It Ends and One of Us Is Lying.
