    DescriptionEva never really wanted to be a mother; certainly not the mother of the unlovable boy who murdered seven of his fellow high school students, a cafeteria worker and a teacher who tried to befriend him. Now, two years later, it is time for her to come to terms with marriage, career, family, parenthood and Kevin's horrific rampage in a series of startlingly direct correspondences with her absent husband, Franklyn. Uneasy with the sacrifices and social demotion of motherhood from the start, Eva fears that her alarming dislike for her own son may be responsible for driving him so nihilistically off the rails.

  • I cant talk about him5

    Don Dealga This is a searing read. I don't think I have ever read a book that moved me on so many levels and that terrified and shocked me as much. by Don Dealga

  • A mother's love???5

    Nigel Leach A wonderful, compelling book about motherhood, guilt, loss, and love. And how it can all go wrong. This is a disturbing "must read". by Nigel Leach

  • Compelling5

    Helen hartley The topic was challenging and thought provoking. I loved the point of view and was frustrated and chilled in turn. Well written, easy to read - a real page turner. by Helen hartley

  • Thought provoking5

    Amanda Gilder Challenges your ideas, views and opinions about child-rearing. A compelling story about a troubled boy from the perspective of his mother. Makes you ask the question: is it nature or nurture which determines the characteristics of Kevin?

    A very compelling read. Highly recomended! by Amanda Gilder

  • Very thought provoking5

    Karen Glenny This book is not what it seems and it is very thought provoking. I thoroughly enjoyed the 'chase' - and then went to the movie which did not disappoint! Characters are very rich. by Karen Glenny

    Toughest read in a while4

    Kirsten Mackay This is a book that if you are a woman is a very difficult and provokative read. It makes you challenge the one thing that is still taboo to openly discuss...what happens if your a bad mother. Full of twists, and absolutly heart breaking, but definitly worth the read. by Kirsten Mackay

    Vikki Hinton Will kick you in the stomach when you least expect it. by Vikki Hinton
