If you've ever wondered how kids willing to shoot up their schools got that way, Flinn's engrossing shocker of peer abuse and the desperation to fit in tries to explain it. Paul, the new guy in school, has a messed-up home life and only one friend, another outcast like himself. When popular Charlie seems willing to let Paul into the "in" group in exchange for a few favors, Paul's slide into the dark side accelerates rapidly. Jason Harris gives Paul a heartbreaking reality that will make you want to help him. But you're already too late. The slick gloss Harris gives Charlie doesn't hide the fact that even popular kids have problems, but it's Paul who will take the fall. If you were troubled by the tragedy at Columbine, don't miss this audiobook. M.C. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 02/ JAN 03]
