hmph...

i'm really digging Shepard's short stories, so i picked this up from the library. he creates great characters, great scenes, and great dialog, which all make for a quick read. i want to say his writing makes an enjoyable read, but with such serious subject matter, i won't. i couldn't put it down, but just like in the way you can't look away from the car crash.

in the end, maybe it's just weird to read about kids who feel alienated and decide the answer is to blow up the world. there were some powerful moments where my stomach dropped or my heart sank while i was reading.

i was reading ginnie's review and she mentions that this is the best of the flock when it comes to authors who decided to tackle the 'columbine' thing. i'm ok with that.
