    One might imagine the horror and fear rippling effect of experiencing a mass shooting. In short order, Shelter in Place delivers that experience in a simple and compelling way. Carnes is swift and to the point.

    This is what it's like. This is what it's like to be in a school and know there's a shooter on campus. This is what it's like to try to hide, to try to protect the students, to try to make the right decisions. This is what the physics of bullets and chemical propulsion do to the body. This is what it's like.
