Worth a read as a counterpoint to We Need to Talk about Kevin. An interesting take on the media's ability to take control of the narrative in instances of mass violence.

This was a fascinating story! It had so much in it. It starts with a school shooting and that sucks you in right away. It's about a stay-at-home dad. He faces many obstacles, those real and imagined. He's a wonderful father doing his best to raise his kids in the best way possible.
Great read!

Relevant book for our times, if not uncomfortable to read at times for it's honesty and introspection as a parent. Quick read. You will not want to put it down. Highly recommend.

AMAZING! What would you do if you heard there was a shooting at your childrens school, but they couldn't find your son.....then they tell you he was involved?
I was hooked from the start!

A wrenching story - is our child capable of a horrendous act? Is it our fault? Have we lost both our child and everything else that is important to us? A very powerful book.
