It's a tragic story: three troubled homeless kids find each other and then, fueled by drugs, commit two murders together. I thought this was both overwritten, especially in the first half, and underinvestigated. The author is a journalist, and this reads like a collection of articles about the case that needed to be connected to make a book. I wish that had been done by looking more deeply into the lives of the kids, or into the many social issues involved, than by editorializing.
