After years of cruel bullying from his classmates, Peter Houghton snaps one morning, and in nineteen minutes, ten residents of the town of Sterling are dead. When the case goes to trial, the reeling town is determined to seek justice for the innocents Peter killed.

But as the trial unfolds, Peter's testimony casts light on the terrible role the residents of Sterling have played in turning a sweet, loving boy into a killer, and it isn't long before Sterling's illusions of innocence find themselves shattered forever..

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Incredibly thought-provoking.' - The Sun

Superb, many-stranded and grimly topical... Picoult binds together precarious alliances with sensitivity, giving depth to characters without losing pace. Inhabited by contradictory, flawed individuals, this intelligent novel draws suspense, moral complexity and a stunning final twist out of what initially seemed a monochrome situation.' - The Times

A horrifying, close to real-life read, this novel is incredibly thought-provoking.' - The Sun
