it was amazing
bookshelves: contemporary-fiction, mystery, parenting

An ambivalent mother finds her son Kevin difficult to love. Her husband doesn't see the same darkness she sees. In a series of letters to her husband, the mother talks about Kevin -- perhaps openly and honestly for the first time. As the book evolves, your sense of dread and discomfort build. And the ending is just so brutal and sad. One of my favorite reads from last year, but be warned, it is disturbing.
