A lockdown catches five grade 12 students by surprise and throws them together in the only unlocked room on that empty third floor wing: the boys' washroom. They sit in silence, judging each other by what they see, by the stories they've heard over the years. Stuck here with them--could anything be worse?
There's Alice an introverted writer, trapped in the role of big sister to her older autistic brother, Noah.

Told in five unique voices through prose, poetry, text messages, journals and homework assignments, this modern-day Breakfast Club takes a twist when Isabelle gets a text that changes everything: NOT A DRILL Shooter in the school
Suddenly, the bathroom doesn't seem so safe anymore. Especially when they learn that one of them knows more about the shooter than they realized...
