Check It Out: Silent Screams

Silent Screams by [Zachary Ryan]

Silent Screams by Zachary Ryan 
Young Adult Fiction

Sometimes, our silence is louder than words. 

For a group of friends, one mistake changed the course of their lives forever. 
In the aftermath of a tragic school shooting, the group must find their own form of justice and a way to begin healing from a wound that just won’t stop hurting. 
For them, the lines were drawn.
Right and wrong became blurred.
Friends became enemies. 
Told from the perspective of four friends, we learn how one student’s revenge reigned terror over a school and a community-- causing secrets to unfold and relationships to be tested.

Silent Screams is emotional. Although the story could use a little more polishing, it was a very powerful and emotional tale. Just be ready to grab the tissues once in a while as the pain and angst these teens feel coping with the aftermath of a school shooting and their lives in general oozes off the page. Highly recommend for anyone who remembers high school being rough or just wants to feel a little less alone with the things they're struggling with as a teen.
