NUMB TO THIS MEMOIR OF MASS SHOOTING GN (C: 0-1-1)
Kindra Neely never expected it to happen to her. No one does. Sure, she'd sometimes been close to gun violence in Texas. But now she lived in Oregon, where she spent her time swimming in rivers with friends or attending classes at the bucolic Umpqua Community College. Then, one day, it happend: a mass shooting shattered her college campus. Over the span of a few minutes, on October 1, 2015, eight students and a professor lost their lives. And suddenly, Kindra became a survivor. This empathetic and ultimately hopeful graphic memoir recounts Kindra's journey forward from those few minutes that changed everything. She was hopeless at times, feeling as if no one was listening. But finally, Kindra learned that-for her-the path toward hope wound through art, helping others, and sharing her story.
