In the story On Your Knees by Stephanie Perry Moore, the characters are faced with a school shooting and have to come face-to-face with the killer. The story involves details and reactions toward the shooting. This book relates to real life issues our society faces now. Moore not only placed herself in the characters' shoes when writing this, but she also placed the reader in the characters' shoes when reading it.
This book is an emotionally realistic story that goes into detail of what happens today in our society during school shootings. I felt like I was there experiencing the whole process! When the characters got scared or frightened, I felt my heart beat a little faster and react as if I were right there experiencing it with the girls.
