GOD IS NOWHERE GOD IS NOW HERE

GOD IS NOWHERE GOD IS NOW HERE
 
Pregnant and secretly married, Cheryl Anway scribbles her last will and testament – and eerie premonition – on a school binder shortly before a rampaging trio of misfit classmates gun her down in a high-school cafeteria. Overrun with paranoia, teenage angst and religious zeal in the ensuing massacre’s wake, this sleepy Vancouver neighbourhood declares its saints, brands its demons and finally moves on.
 
But for a handful of people still reeling from that horrific day, life remains perpetually derailed. For dramatically different characters tell their stories in their own words: Cheryl, who calmly narrates her own death; Jason, the boy no one knew was her husband, still marooned ten years later by his loss; Heather, the woman trying to love the shattered Jason; and Jason’s father Reg, a cruelly religious man no one suspects is still worth loving. Each wrestles with God, self-defeat and a crippling inability to hold on to those they love.
