That's Not What Happened by Kody Keplinger
Synopsis (via Goodreads!): It's been three years since the Virgil County High School Massacre. Three years since my best friend, Sarah, was killed in a bathroom stall during the mass shooting. Everyone knows Sarah's story--that she died proclaiming her faith.
But it's not true.
I know because I was with her when she died. I didn't say anything then, and people got hurt because of it. Now Sarah's parents are publishing a book about her so this might be my last chance to set the record straight . . . but I'm not the only survivor with a story to tell about what did--and didn't--happen that day.
Except Sarah's martyrdom is important to a lot of people, people who don't take kindly to what I'm trying to do. And the more I learn, the less certain I am about what's right. I don't know what will be worse: the guilt of staying silent or the consequences of speaking up . . .
The storyline was great! I feel like the romance was perfect and I loved the representation! I made all my friends read it, right away! I found the anxiety reminded me of one of my irl friends. The mystery behind what actually happened was keeping me on the edge of my seat! I was a little uncomfortable when the story talked about one of the characters having an alcohol problem, but it was easily overlooked.
Overall, I would give this book 4/5 stars!
Welp! That is it! Have you read this book?
