The Mass by Natalie Blank

Daniel is the only survivor of the mass shooting, in which the entirety of his football team died. The only reason he survived is because he was home sick. Now he doesn't feel much of anything, only numbness. He joins online the support group and meets Maya. 

Maya lost her career due to a shot in the leg and has kind gave up on life since then. They have an instant connection, but the baggage they both will keep them apart unless they find a way to overcome it

It's a page-turner! I couldn't stop reading from the start till the finish. The story is full of suffering and heartbreak and is told in a very real way. It shows the emotional wreckage such trauma can have on people, especially those who are so young, and the fallout that happens. But not all is so bleak, from a very dark place the Maya and Daniel grew hope as they connected. 

The story deals with hard themes, like alcohol abuse, trauma, and survivor guilt, from the perspective of a person in the middle of it. We see these characters in the worst of times. But even in the darkest place, there is space for hope and love.

It's a heartbreaking story, but the one everyone should read.
