Shooter Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Shooter

This book for teens is written more like a compilation of reports than it is like an actual book. At the very beginning, you know something serious has happened in one of the schools in Harrison County, but you are not quite sure what. The happenings are slowly revealed through interviews with two students, Cameron and Carla, and a few reports written by the police and doctors. These interviews appear to have been conducted about a year after the incident occurs.

Cameron is interviewed first to give his take on a shooting that occurred at Madison High School involving his friend, Len. It was speculated and reported by newspapers that Len and Cameron were in a group that was classified as a cult which in turn caused the shooting at the school. Through the interviews, you come to find out what role both Cameron and Carla had to play in the school incident. Everything is summed up in the last portion of the book, as you get a glimpse into Len's mind by reading his diary.
