A lockdown catches five grade 12 students by surprise and throws them together in the only nearby unlocked room: the boys' washroom. There's Alice: an introverted writer, trapped in the role of big sister to her older autistic brother, Noah; Isabelle: the popular, high-achieving, student council president, whose greatest performance is her everyday life; Hogan: an ex-football player with a troubled past and a hopeless future; Xander: that socially awkward guy hiding behind the camera, whose candid pictures of school life, especially those of Isabelle, have brought him more trouble than answers. When Isabelle gets a text that says NOT A DRILL!! Shooter in the school!, suddenly, the bathroom doesn't seem so safe anymore. Especially when they learn that one of them knows more about the shooter than they realized. For junior and senior high readers. Winner of the 2017 Red Maple Fiction Award, the 2018 Manitoba Young Readers Choice Award and the 2017 John Spray Mystery Award.
