Valerie's boyfriend is the shooter. He took a gun to school and opened fire hitting several students before turning the gun on himself. Valerie is scarred, metally and physically (she was shot, too). She must have know he would do it, right? She was his boyfriend - she had to know. But she also saved people, so some consider her a hero.
Her parents don't trust her and now she must go back to school and face all the people who think they know her and everything about her.
Only you will know what is really going on with Valerie. There are at least two sides to every story and this is hers.
