A great listen; creepy and thought-provoking!

Whoa, this was not what I expected, but was so so good! A fascinating story based on a True Crime I'd never heard of, I listened to this in two long chunks (though it's broken up by chapters for shorter listening, too). Made me wish there was a bookmark or highlight feature in Audible because so many parts -- about how we label people, about the difference between raw talent and privilege, etc., - were so interesting and made be go "huh!" aloud while listening.

But it was also just an entertaining and often funny story about what it's like to be a real loser in high school, the kind people are scared of. Thought the writing was so smart, and the performances great! Now I wanna see the movie or TV show based off of it, haha.

Totally recommend!

Creepy and engrossing

This is a wonderful old-school radio drama in the best way. Leah has taken a spine-tingly creepy story and adapted it for the myriad opportunities and strengths of audio storytelling. Steven Boyer’s performance is just incredible. If you’re a fan of true crime and/or psychological mysteries that investigate the dynamics of toxic masculinity (oof, or if you just want a genuinely fun and creepy yarn!) you need to get this.

Gripping

Excellent acting and storytelling. I was gripped from start to finish. Unlike anything I've heard before.
