While this book will live with me for a long time, I DID NOT like it. It is a hideous subject and had an awful ending.

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.

This is a page turner! From the first page, it grabbed me. Lots of twists and turns. If you love a suspenseful courtroom drama, you won't be disappointed by this book.

The characters were normal people; relatable. I love the surprises in the book. Not too predictable.

This was a very good book. Made me think. Complex story. Now that I am done, I can clean the house.

Fine bovel - somewhat unpredictable but a little slow to get into with a decent finale finish.
