The 14-year-old son of an assistant district attorney in Massachusetts is charged with the killing of a fellow student.
This was really very good, but not good enough to make it to my "Best Reads of 2012" list. Had I been surprised at the ending or liked it more, I think it would have had a better chance of making it.
The narrator of this audio edition was terrific, and I was engrossed in the story from the minute I started listening. It's a legal thriller, so there's courtroom drama in which I thoroughly enjoyed. There was also some unbelievable moments or even just hard-to-believe moments/dialog, but I was able to suspend disbelief and keep my mind focused on the storyline. I'll definitely be looking up this author's backlist!
