                                          It Was A Thursday by: Carol Lynne
                                                               reviewed by: Tash

It was a Thursday. The day one eighteen-year-old gunman would change the lives of an entire town.
Principal Mark Kurtz loved his school. He worked hard to give his students every advantage in life, but he could have never predicted that on a warm day in May, a distraught senior would commit an unimaginable act of vengeance on his classmates.
In the aftermath of the shooting that left both students and faculty members dead, Mark must deal with his own guilt while trying to help those around him feel safe once again.
Mark’s problems are compounded when an old flame, Lane Warner, arrives in town to help treat the trauma victims. How can he possibly deal with his own guilt, be there for his seventeen-year-old son and confront the part of himself he’s always denied while trying to heal a broken community?

Mark Kurtz is the principle of his small town's high school, and has just gone through the worst imaginable tragedy - watching one of his students, Scott Brown aka Skittles kill and injure his students and staff before turning his gun onto himself. Skittles tried to live his life as a proud gay man in a narrow minded community but a terrible act of bullying and bigotry led him to do the unthinkable. Months later and Mark still blames himself. That is until his ex lover and best friend Lane Warner walks back into his life after being apart for the last twenty years. Lane teaches Mark to finally accept who he really is and to own it as well as understanding that the horrific tragedy was not his fault.
This is the first book I've read by Carol Lynne and I was seriously wowed.
It is a really beautiful and well written story, I wasn't able to put it down until I had finished it. To see Mark finally be true to himself, the love of his life and his family was just so damn sweet I couldn't help but get teary eyed. It's definitely sad but so heart lifting too!

the 5 skateboard rating :)
