If Anything Happens
School-shooting drills have become as ubiquitous as fire drills; children today don’t know of a time when they weren’t a part of their safety routine. But what is not as routine is discussing the emotions and trauma that linger long after an actual school shooting occurs. Authors Michael Govier and Will McCormack offer a story of a family struggling with loss as a permission slip to react to grief, as well as an opening to conversation. Based on the Academy Award-winning short film of the same name, it is uniquely told from the perspective of Rose, a 12-year-old victim of a school shooting, as she guides readers through her story. She visits scenes from her childhood, her school days, and her last moments of life, all the while watching over her parents as they struggle to process her untimely passing. Govier who has been featured in the LA Times is an author, director, screenwriter, actor, playwright and producer.
