The book approaches a Columbine type incident from a different vantage point, the one of the parent. An abundance of books have been written about teenage murderers, from the teenagers point of view, but this one shows how it affects all members of the family. In spite of what some consider their best efforts, things go wrong with kids with the most horrific consequences. There are warning signs which are ignored, fears to which people turn a deaf ear. This book examines the dynamic that may create the behavior that leads to the tragic events and displays the effect of such aberrant actions upon everyone involved.
