This story shows what can happen at any school after a nearby school shooting. Tom, who goes to Central High, doesn't understand why his school has suddenly become so opressive when the shooting happened at a school fifty miles away. But, the school tightens its security to the point where the students aren't allowed to express their individuality or even read The Catcher in the Rye. Tom and his friends must find out what is happening at their school before it's too late.
I liked this story because it warns people about what happens if they are protected to the point that all of their freedoms are taken away. It was scary the way that the students and teachers just disappeared, and reminded me of a totalitarian soceity. This is an interesting read for anyone.
