Read in August, 2009

** spoiler alert ** This is such a powerful story of a young man's guilt. Told as dialogue, diary entries and school assignments, we see a boy disintigrating and no one around him know just haw dark his soul is becoming. Andy accidently kills a friend in a drunk driving episode, and is never able to pull his life backtogether. And, although the ending is tragic, we get to see why he made the decision he did, why he may very well be justified (although not the way he did it) and how those around him feel and why they are equally justified in blaming him for his final action. This is not an answer to the problem, but God does it make you think. Time does NOT heal all wounds.
