I have mixed emotions about this book
on January 18, 2016
I've been aware of Ted Rall's cartoons through the LA Times. Some hit the mark, others are over the top. And his graphic style is crude and eccentric.
This book, supposedly true, is about a boy who is horribly bullied, and responds with horrible actions. To the extent it is true, the actions captured in the book are, indeed, horrible. If adults actually looked away and let all this happen it is not only shocking, it makes me wonder about our society.
Certainly outrageous, but without more insight into the truth of the story it is hard to know what to be most outraged about. It's disconcerting and violent, but it's not entirely clear on where to focus your anger.
