Please help me!  I read a book about a year ago? that was about a teen that went through alot of stuff and then she(I believe) dies in the end in the Colombine shooting - the book was not about Colombine - the ending was a shock. I would like my daughter to read this book and I can't remember the name. I guess I read too much (ha,ha).

Is it "19 minutes" by Jodi Picoult?

Debbie is right....19 Minutes.  Very moving, very tearful book.
