This is truly one of the most graphic and disturbing books I have ever read. It is sexually graphic with the convict and his 'partner' in jail, as well as his sexual longing for both the 19-year-old writing to him and his previous pre-pubescent victims.

The way that this was written, and the reveal late in the book from the 19-year-old correspondent, makes me think that the way events and writings were portrayed in the book were the mad delusions of this incarcerated child molester, and makes me wonder what actually happened within his recollections. I could be reading way more into it than there really was, but I have a feeling his re-counting of events is quite skewed.

Tread lightly when you pick up this book; it not for the faint of heart (or stomach).
