People Kill People is a harsh portrayal of the reality that is gun violence in the United States of America. The changing characters in the book provide viewpoints from every perspective. Not only does the author shed light on important topics such as white supremacy, racism and group mentality, but the narrator in the story is compelling. The shock I felt all throughout this story make this book one of the most powerful I've ever read. I would recommend this book to open-minded readers who want to explore different perspectives of gun violence.

Rand and Cami are two young adults that are married. They’ve just gotten a son. They both don’t agree on anything, as everyone around them leaves there life, because of there choices. This book was okay because, in my opinion it kind of influenced that young marriage is okay, but it really isn’t. This book was scary and I loved it. The book itself is very detailed about the scenes which I really liked because it made me visualize the scenes. :) Rating 4/5
