In this remarkable book that must have been unimaginably difficult to write, Klebold offers another harrowing perspective of Columbine. She tells her story with great sensitivity to everyone involved and uses her experience bravely to search for ways to avoid such tragedies in the future.

I appreciate Sue Klebold's courage and vulnerability in sharing the horrifying account of her son's part in the 1999 Columbine massacre. This is a heart wrenching, but important, read that I recommend to any parent.

This was a sad and interesting read. It's such a well known story. I learned so much about this tragic event and about teen depression from this mothers account.
You can't help but have some empathy for this mother who felt she was raising her kids in a good home. What really happened to bring about such tragedy?

“We teach our kids the importance of good dental care, proper nutrition, and financial responsibility. How many of us teach our children to monitor their own brain health, or know how to do it ourselves?”
I wish I had listened more instead of lecturing; I wish I had sat in silence with him instead of filling the void with my own words…acknowledged his feelings instead of trying to talk him out of them, and that I ‘d never accepted his excuses to avoid conversation - I’m tired, I have homework to do - when things felt off. I wish I’d sat in the dark with him, and repeated my concerns when he dismissed them. I wish I’d dropped everything else to focus on him, probed and prodded more, and that I had been present enough to see what I did not. 263
