Publisher's Summary

A heartbreaking novel about living with your worst mistake, from New York Times best-selling author Barry Lyga.

A chunk of old memory, adrift in a pool of blood.

Sebastian Cody did something horrible, something no one - not even Sebastian himself - can forgive. At the age of four, he accidentally shot and killed his infant sister with his father's gun.

Now, 10 years later, Sebastian has lived with the guilt and horror for his entire life. With his best friend away for the summer, Sebastian has only a new friend - Aneesa - to distract him from his darkest thoughts. But even this relationship cannot blunt the pain of his past. Because Sebastian knows exactly how to rectify his childhood crime and sanctify his past. It took a gun to get him into this.

Now he needs a gun to get out.

Unflinching and honest, Bang is as true and as relevant as tomorrow's headlines, the story of one boy and one moment in time that cannot be reclaimed.

"Heartbreaking and brutally compelling." (Kirkus Reviews)

"Narrator Charlie Thurston turns in an energetic performance of Lyga's young adult novel.... Thurston's skillful pacing as Sebastian reaches the edge of suicide again will keep listeners glued to their earbuds." (AudioFile)

    "Resilience… With pizza."

    I bought this book because I have a very very strong review in the New York Times book review. I read it and stayed with it because it is filled with really good characters, and a storyline that beautiful he expresses why life is still worth living… Even after tragedy
