I DID NOT read the study guide; I read the novel. Maybe I should have rated it 5. I gave it a 4 because in places the story seems to move too slowly. It is the story of an assistant district attorney whose teen-aged son is accused of the murder of a classmate. Of course, the father does not handle the case. The end has a twist. It is not a happy story, but it is a good, well-written one.
