What goodreads says: 
Twenty years after surviving a school shooting Tanner Khan and his fellow classmates reluctantly agree to hold a reunion. Although they suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, they come back to their hometown and reunite in the defunct school building. Old flames are rekindled, fears are ignited, and their lives are about to explode in a whirlwind of memories, haunted by the spirit of David Ray, the troubled teen who killed many of the students.
Once they're inside the school, they discover that a dark entity has joined them. It has come to collect a debt long overdue and someone has to pay. Will Tanner and his classmates overcome their fears, putting the pieces of their lives back together, or will they be consumed by their worst nightmare?

What I say:
Jeff kindly sent me this book for reviewing and I am still in awe with it, it was so good.
The characters are amazing because they seem so real, as none of them are perfect (far from it actually)
David Ray was a haunted young man, who while I hated him for what he did, I also found myself feeling very sorry for what he had suffered.
As for Tanner, Maria, Lana, Noah, Nick, Bryan and Kate, well we get to see how they are coping 20 years later with the fact that the saw their friends die in front of them,  and the thing is that they all cope in different ways.
Allthough this book is purely fiction, I think it partly does show people what happens when someone goes through a traumatizing experience and how everyone deals with it in different ways.
And it also has paranormal parts in it which are perfectly integrated into the book, and in the end someone leaves us with an well known dilema.
And lastly allthough not a horror story it was quite scary in some points and has you gripping onto the pages of the book or in my case gripping the sides of the computer, dying (not literally of course) to read what's going to happen next.
I give this book 5 outt of 5 and I can't wait to read what Jeff writes next.
See you next time
