Wow. This book solidly takes the character dynamics from the first book, then starts putting pressure on them with intensity. The friendships between the original JP2H crew start to break down, and it's painful to watch some of these things falling out.
This book is also notable for its heavy focus on Celia, showing us her side of things. What's it like to be the principal's daughter, the ever-cheerful and holy girl at JP2H? Not always happy, that's for sure. I loved seeing her get depth, and seeing the exploration of her friendship with Allie.
Finally, this book definitely goes into some dark places, as the actions of the shooter escalate. It follows from the first book, but it does strongly raise the stakes and amp the tension.
Overall, an excellent second entry that furthers the dynamics in the first book and mixes them up.
