An interesting read about the ways we react to tragedies (such as Columbine). I hadn't really paid attention to the differences that political parties had reacted when this happened, but there clearly are differences and I am more aware of those now. It's certainly not a "can't set down" book, but nonetheless I am glad that I read it.

I read quite a few books on Colombine about the victims and I was told that this was a book about looking at it from another side. I disagreed with almost everything about it. But it was very informing on how some people are viewing this tratic event.
