A place where nobody locks their doors at night, a place you and your
family proudly call home. Until that is, the worst crime against two
inncocent young girls unfolds. "Horror" as described by the local newspaper. What the community and ultimately the vast media asked is how and why? The state of Vermont had to face for the first time in it's history how to punish "kids" for what was always considered to be violent adult crimes. Murder! Violent, sexual rape and murder against two
young and happy adolecent girls walking home from school. Ultimately it, the state of Vermont, would have to change it's laws accordingly. The "spooky" thing about this book is that it is ultimately a story of what the future holds for the rest of the country in terms of juveniles committing violent crimes such as murder and rape. Since this book has been published (1981), year by year and state by state, the age punishable for murder (and other crimes) has been reduced to below the age of 15.
