    Description

    A heartbreaking novel that offers no easy answers, Give a Boy a Gun addresses the growing problem of school violence. Although it is a work of fiction, it could tragically be the leading nightly news story in any community.

    After a high school shooting at her alma mater, a college journalism student returns home to interview students, teachers, parents, and friends of the suspects. Intermingled with her interviews are journal entries written by the two troubled boys responsible for the shooting. Their journals chronicle years of systematic abuse at the hands of their classmates and follow the boys' frustration and pain as they turn to rage.

    Give a Boy a Gun explores every angle and raises tough questions about peer bullying, gun control and accountability. A full cast of narrators' voices add a dramatic reality to this provocative work.

    Realistic and eye-opening.

    This audiobook was a realistic, harrowing and eye-opening story that, unfortunately, should be classed as non-fiction. It gives the listener an insight into the ugly world of bullying and teasing mixed with feelings of loneliness and suicide, and takes them on a journey that is both harrowing and intriguing. Performed fantastically by a large cast, this listen is one that should not be missed.
    Reason I gave it four stars instead of five: at times, it moved out of the fiction mode and into a more essay-based mode. I found that this decreased the quality of the story.
