Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult
This novel deals with a school shooting committed by a 17 year old boy who suffered years of bullying and physical and verbal abuse by classmates. Picoult delves into various characters' pasts, and explores their reactions to the shooting. The psychological insight in this book is really fascinating and relevant. She explores that desire to fit in that just about any young person has, and what that desire can lead a person to do.
