This is a shocking and very disturbing book. It is very graphic and not for the faint of heart. It is, however, a sad commentary on our society and how no one seems to feel that people are fully responsible for their own actions and choices.

A riveting, but disturbing account of the pre-meditated murder of Bobby Kent by his closest friends. It's hard to wrap your mind around the fact that this is a true story. Very well-written, but if you're easily disturbed you might want to skip it.

I had this read in three evenings... I couldn't seem to put it down. I'm a Mom, and I'm glad I read it...any parent should. I don't want to give anything away, but here's some of the reveiws;
"A COMPELLING ACCOUNT THAT READS LIKE FICTION...MUST READING FOR ANYONE WHO CARES ABOUT JUSTICE...[AND]FOR ANY PARENT WHO CARES ABOUT CHILDREN AND WHAT DANGERS LURK IN OUR MALLS AND STREETS AND SCHOOLS." --Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel
"A DEEPLY DISTURBINB BOOK, AN INDICTMENT OF SUBRUBAN VALUES AND OF AN AIMLESS, VIOLENT MIDDLE-CLASS YOUTH CULTURE THAT IS DEPRAVED BECAUSE IT IS MORALLY--NOT ECONOMICALLY--DEPRIVED." --The New York Times Book Reveiw
