This is another of Thomas Thompson's excellent true crime stories. It concerns an ordinary family working toward, but never quite achieving the "American Dream". Their two much loved sons are the focus of both parents. Then the older son becomes increasingly involved in the drug culture, the relationship between father and son becomes strained to the breaking point. The escalating arguments and fights finally end in murder.

Interesting look at a teenage boy's life. Reads like "Go Ask Alice", but from a male point of view.
