Review: Time Bomb - Joelle Charbonneau

Time Bomb

Review: Time Bomb - Joelle Charbonneau - March 2018

It's the week before High school starts and the school should be empty but for six people, they needed to get to the school a week before for their own reasons.  We have Z, who is now homeless after his mother just passed away. Diane, the congressman's daughter who is in the school to get Yearbook done and a head start on the upcoming year , Frankie - a football player who is getting prepared to prank the newcomers , Tad - an outcast and a guy in love with Frankie who has come to confront him , Rashid - here to update his school ID since he has now shaved off his beard and doesn't look like a muslim terrorist and Cas who is starting the new school but secretly has come to play her clarinet one more time before offing herself. During the morning, there is a bang and soon they are about to discover that someone has bombed the school. As more bombs go off, revelations are revealed and secrets come out and it becomes clearer that one of the six is the school bomber. Which one though is it and why? Time Bomb is told from six POV's and follows each of the characters lives with glances of what brought them to school today and how the rest of the day plays out. I have to say I did not see the twist coming when the "bomber" was revealed. It definitely surprised me but afterward, it did start to make sense as sometimes when we are pushed to our limits, we all do things that others thought was not possible. This was a good YA novel and quite a timely read as I have just finished season two of 13 Reasons Why?
