After reading some books about the victims at Columbine, I was interested in knowing how the survivors were doing in the years after the tragedy so I decided to pick up this book. Little did I know, it would be one of the most heartbreaking stories I had ever heard! Marjorie has a very interesting story to tell, before, during and after the massacre. The contrast present in the book is simply stunning. One day Marjorie has it all, literally a perfect life, and the next it's gone. She personally witnessed Dylan Klebold being the target of harassment numerous times in the halls and little did Marjorie know, both their worlds would collide on April 20th 1999 and leave devastating ripple effects. Dylan's life ended and although Marjorie's didn't, her beautiful little life as she knew it had completely vanished. This book is her story through her successes and failures, from having a solid foundation wiped out from under your feet to slowly rebuilding it.

I cannot praise Marjorie and her mom enough for having written this book. It was a very brave thing to do considering the trauma Marjorie went through that day and the aftermath that was almost just as devastating for her. While I wished that the book could've examined Marjorie's feelings towards the tragedy a little more, the story is still very profound and very much deserves to be read. I must warn the reader however, this book does not exactly have a happy ending like some others I have read about the survivors and the victims. It deals with the harsh realities of life and does not lessen them, but I think that it can teach us a thing or two about the perspective we have on our own lives.

Very moving... July 17 2006
By Miss Hater - Published on Amazon.com
I enjoyed this book .I liked the down to Earth writing style in which she related her story.I am always interested in hearing about peoples experiences at Columbine.To me the best part of the book was when Marjorie related personally seeing Dylan Klebold being picked on and harassed in the Halls at Columbine.
That first person account was very detailed, and touching and means so much to me.I also commend her for acknowledging the pain of E and D's families and expressing sympathy towards them.
I wish Marjorie a lot of luck and success in the future and I thank her and her Mother for sharing her story.

This is an amazing book July 18 2006
By bj2008 - Published on Amazon.com
Marjorie Lindholm takes you from this perfect little life where everything comes easy to a living hell. She was this golden girl cheerleader that had her whole life planned out until she got stuck in a classroom during the massacre at Columbine High School. Her story shows what happens to a person who never had to deal with hard knocks when they get sucker punched with something really horrible. She wants to be understood more than be liked because she is painfully honesty about stuff most people would hide. Great book if you are looking for real life, not some fairy tale with a happy ending and great moral.

A Must Read!! Jan. 31 2006
By Kara Lynn Atkinson - Published on Amazon.com
I read this book in just 2 days. I couldn't put it down. Marjorie tells her deepest thoughts, and I could relate. I've been through a traumatic experience, and I couldn't deal with it for the longest time, but eventually I came to terms with life. Reading her book put alot of things in perspective and made me feel like I'm not alone in the world. I'd recommend it to anybody who has had to deal with violence first hand. You'll see yourself in the pages.

Good Book Jan. 12 2007
By FBall Brett - Published on Amazon.com
I read this book for English Class and did a presentation about it. It's a really good book for teenagers and maybe younger adult, but probably not for younger kids because she talks about some pretty graphic stuff. Probably not for older people because it isn't very upbeat and not the way they would want to see a survivor portrayed. Fairly honest insights that I could relate to.

One Girl's Experiences Jan. 23 2009
By BooksandMoviesLover - Published on Amazon.com

Marjorie Lindholm describes her experiences before, during and after the Columbine shooting. The book reads like a conversation. I admire Marjorie for her determination. I appreciate that this is a book she felt she had to write, and I think it will be interesting to lots of people. I just want to warn everyone that if you're trying to satisfy your morbid curiousity, look elsewhere. This book does have a chapter or two that takes place during the shooting, but mostly it's about Marjorie's life after the tragedy and how it was different. The story isn't told in scenes. It's told in summary. But I found myself really relating to Marjorie so I could understand why she wrote this. It's mostly meant for those who want to know more about the real life ripple effects of this horrible crime.
