Time Bomb – Review

I cannot get over how amazing this book was!

It covers some tough, but very real issues including racism, bullying, sexual orientation, perfection, and of course, the act of a school being bombed.  Each character has some sort of problem that readers can easily relate to.  We’ve all had to deal with at least one of these issues, whether it’s parental pressure, bullying, discrimination, etc.  It’s a very timely book that reflects our culture.

Reading the book you wonder if the bomber is any of the six main characters or someone we do not see.  After all, each student gives a shifty reason as to why they are at the school a week before classes begin, so any of them could be suspects.  Some of the characters’ motives are revealed early on, while others remain a mystery until near the end.  When they hear that the bomber is still inside the school, they begin to point fingers at one another, even though they cannot be sure the bomber really is one of them or someone else who is inside the school.

The ending was fantastic, and that’s all I’m going to say about it.

Time Bomb is a book I highly recommend!

  1. I haven’t read anything yet by Joelle Charbonneau but keep hearing good things about her books, so I just got an ARC of Verify! I’m so excited to read it. I love when tough issues like this are written about tactfully!
