Shooter is about the aftermath of a school shooting (obviously) and the cool thing about it is it's written in an unconventional style. It's presented as police reports and interviews with the shooter's 2 friends in the days and weeks following the shooting... and also the diary of the shooter himself.

I thought the idea of this book was awesome. When I first opened this book and saw that it was police and psychologist interviews and reports I got so excited! But then it was SO short!! I'm all for short YA books (because that means you can read more of them!), but the problem with this one is that book didn't feel done. I wanted more! I don't feel like I got to really understand Len and his friends. Cameron was the most developed character and I still didn't feel like I got to understand how he felt about anything. Also the diary could've been amazing and it just was blah.
I've read several books about Columbine and I sort of felt like this was too copy-cat. The shooting in the woods, building bombs, the library being the main shooting area, and was it just me or was Cameron a little bit too much Brooks Brown?? You can do a school shooting and come up with your own version of events you know?
In the end it was just ok for me.... It needed to go WAY deeper! ( )

Very mediocre. I got the gist of it halfway through. Too repetitive and a lot of unnecessary stuff, especially toward the end. It wasn't horrible to read but I didn't enjoy it. ( )

A series of transcribed interviews with teens Cameron Porter and Carla Evans by police authorities, and Leonard Gray's diary entries attempt to analyze the events leading to Leonard's shooting spree and suicide at their high school. Leaves the reader more to think about than to answer any questions of why? Some of the slang seemed awkward--"pull your beard and feel your pain"????

I didn't like the book "Shooter" by Walter Dean Myers. The reason being because the way that they made it into a conversation didn't interest me. They have a kid and a man to ask questions, and they go back and forth asking and answering questions. The background of this book is that there was a seventeen year old kid named Leonardo that started a school shooting. Two other kids named Cameron and Carla were interviewed and asked a lot of questions because they were working with Leonardo. Some of the questions were about them, and some about Leonardo. The reason these two kids are being asked so many questions is because Leonardo had a bad childhood and started a school shooting and then in the end, killed himself. I only rated this book 1 star because it didn't interest me enough to finish the book. I would only recommend this book if you liked Walter Dean Myers other books like "Monster". ( )

The story is about a realistic fiction school shooting caused by 17 year old named Leonardo. Two others were thought of working with him, 17 year old Cameron and 17 year old Carla. From interviews and Leonardo’s diary, it is shown that Leonardo has been bullied a lot, hes been in a lot of trouble. Leonardo’s diary also shows that his father beats his mother, showing that he does not have a good childhood. From all of this, Leonardo started a school shooting and killed himself.

One of the best books I have ever read. A very powerful story that could sadly, actually happen. The book seems so real, I actually feel bad for Leonardo’s life. It was pretty messed up! Recommend this book to any teenage or over, and as this is another Walter Dean Myers book, 5 out of 5 stars! ( )
