Keir, the narrator of the novel, is a good boy. According to him, he has a great father, loving sisters, and a supportive football team; all in all, he leads a great life. He says himself that he would rather be alone in his room than out partying with a bunch of people, so it was probably just a mishap that he ended up at a party where soccer players were being hazed by football players. Keir would never do something like that, the video camera only caught someone who looked vaguely like Keir. He also never would have been apart of a group that destroyed the town's statue of Paul Revere, that must have been another group of rowdy boys. The reader is fooled over and over again as he is constantly being lied to. Keir twists things in his imagination to make things seem fine, when in reality his father is a drunk, his sisters are embarrassed of him, and he relies on pills to feel warm. Keir can ignore, forget, and make excuses for all of his past flaws, until the night he commits the inexcusable. A night spent with Gigi, his friend's girlfriend, is something he could only dream of; until the night it happened. They were both drunk and feeling let down by the people they love. But Keir would never do anything to hurt someone he loves... or would he? I would recommend this book for older teens ages 15 and up.
