Hate List
Jennifer Brown

A young adult novel about the difficult topic of school shootings, their victims and longlasting consequences. Valerie’s boyfriend Nick opens fire in their school’s cafeteria. A list the two composed, their so-called hate list, served to choose his targets. Although Valerie is wounded in her attempt to stop Nick, her guilt will follow her for a long time to come. She returns to school, haunted by her memories and struggles to move on.

This novel might serve as a starting point for an interdisiplinary teaching project to prevent bullying, bias, stereotypes and violence in school.
