"In both Columbine and this up-to-the minute portrait of the Parkland tragedy, Cullen has produced masterpieces that are simultaneously heartbreaking and hopeful about a saner future."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Cullen brings his eloquence, expertise, combination of deep research and concision, and unbiased perspective to yet another mass school shooting, revealing its deepest layers and resonance. . . . [a] moving, defining, and important account of an essential and vital youth movement."--Booklist (starred review)
"[Parkland] provides nuanced, sensitive portraits of the Parkland kids who have become media stars. . . . These are extraordinary young people, and Cullen does them and us a great service by showing their ordinary lives."--San Francisco Chronicle
"Parkland is the first book about the shooting that's not marketed toward teens and young adults. It also may be the most optimistic of the bunch. . . . an inspiring read."--The Atlantic
Parkland is an unexpectedly lively chronicle with a powerful message.--Newsday
"[A] page-turner. . . . Both realistic and optimistic, this insightful and compassionate chronicle is a fitting testament to a new chapter in American responses to mass shootings."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Parkland is one of the most uplifting books you will read all year. . . . [it] is a balm. . . . genius."--Washington Post
"If any nonfiction writer is equipped to tell this story, it's Dave Cullen."--Book Forum
"Parkland is exceptional. I really look forward to it being unleashed to the world, because the Parkland students really did something. They are a political force to be reckoned with in our country."--Elise Jordan, NBC political analyst
"Part character study, part media analysis, part political critique, Parkland ends up being many things. Thanks to Dave Cullen's gift for clear, involving storytelling, it ends up being, above all, a compelling "year-in-the-life" tale of a group of ordinary, yet also extraordinary, teens."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
