"The tragedies keep coming. As we reel from the latest horror..."  So begins a new epilogue, illustrating how Columbine became the template for nearly two decades of "spectacle murders". It is a false script, seized upon by a generation of new killers. In the wake of Newtown, Aurora, and Virginia Tech, the imperative to understand the crime that sparked this plague grows more urgent every year. What really happened April 20, 1999? The horror left an indelible stamp on the American psyche, but most of what we "know" is wrong.

I loved this book! which sounds terrible considering it's a book about a school shooting, but Cullen effectively used pathos to make his readers feel sympathy for the deceased and wounded. He made us feel hate towards the perpetrators. Amazingly written and I recommend it to anyone that is interested in this type of topic.
