Riley and his friends are gearing up for their senior year by spending one last night hanging out in the woods, drinking a few beers, and playing Truth or Dare. But what starts out as a good time turns sinister when they find a mysterious pair of binoculars. Those who dare to look through them see strange visions, which they brush off as hallucinations. Why else would Riley see himself in bed with his best friend’s girlfriend—a girl he’s had a secret crush on for years?

In the weeks that follow, the visions begin to come true...including a gruesome murder. One of Riley’s closest friends is now the prime suspect. But who is the murderer? Have Riley and his friends really seen the future through those mysterious binoculars? And what if they are powerless to change the course of events?

THIS IS HOW IT ENDS is available in paperback, hardcover and ebook at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and lots of local booksellers including The Village Bookstore, Little Joe's, Spotty Dog Books & Ale, Bear Pond Books, The Vermont Book Shop, Stowe Books and many others.
