People Kill People, by Ellen Hopkins


People kill people. Guns just make it easier.


A gun is sold in the classifieds after killing a spouse, bought by a teenager for needed protection. But which was it? Each has the incentive to pick up a gun, to fire it. Was it Rand or Cami, married teenagers with a young son? Was it Silas or Ashlyn, members of a white supremacist youth organization? Daniel, who fears retaliation because of his race, who possessively clings to Grace, the love of his life? Or Noelle, who lost everything after a devastating accident, and has sunk quietly into depression?

One tense week brings all six people into close contact in a town wrought with political and personal tensions. Someone will fire. And someone will die. But who?

 

“Readers are left guessing which character will kill and which will die.”  (Kirkus)

"This powerful story will spark controversy and prompt passionate debate." (Publishers Weekly)
