"We Need to Talk About Kevin"
by Lionel Shriver

Two years before we meet Eva Khatchadourian
her son Kevin has murdered seven of his High School
classmates, a cafeteria worker and a beloved
teacher who tried to befriend him.
Since he was not sixteen he was sent to
a facility for young offenders in upstate New York.

Eva tells Kevin's story through a series of letters
to her estrangled husband.
She confesses to her concerns during Kevin's
childhood, and her feelings of inadequecy as a parent.
This is a compelling and absorbing story of motherhood
family and career.

This is not "and everyone lives happily ever after"
book but it is a book you will read from start to finish.
