I am in my late 60's and glad that my child
rearing days are well behind me. Parenting is very challenging, especially the teenage years. Although people always look to the parents when a child exhibits antisocial & troublesome behaviors but while the parents may be the primary caregivers the child comes in contact with many people who help shape their personalities. This book examines every aspect of Peter's life experiences and leaves us to decide which influences contributed to his attitudes.
The subject of the book, the event that engages the people in the story, is a difficult and challenging one. Expect to be challenged. Isn't that what good literary fiction is about? I truly enjoyed this novel, though I had to put it down at times to deal with the pain of the aftermath of this all-too-real event.
