Peter has been bullied by his "peers" most of his life. It started on the first day of kindergarten, and just never stopped. Finally, in his junior year in high school, he does something which will stop the bullying forever: he comes to school armed. Nineteen minutes later, ten people are dead, and an entire community is brought to its knees. This is a book which offers no easy answers to an issue which is in the mind of any parent of a school-aged child (who can forget Columbine?), but it's a story which has been carefully crafted, and beatifully told - a real page-turner, and one which proved very thought-provoking for me.
