Worst of all, he feels that he deserves this extreme rejection. In sheer desperation, he steals his fathers gun, and in cold blood, kills his parents and embarks upon a shooting spree at his school. What pushed him over the edge? What happens to children who kill?Shooter in the Sky, a composite biography, expresses, from the childs own tormented inner perspective, and in his own raw language, what drove him to kill. This landmark book reveals what children who have killed have say they want adults to know.Despite the fact that teen violence is becoming epidemic, the subject is rarely discussed with children. Designed for use by parents, teachers, and psychologists, this vital and thought-provoking book offers the basis for opening this dialogue. Shooter in the Sky has a mission:-- To support communication between adolescents and adults, thereby making it possible for them to have open discussions on this difficult topic.-- To allow children to share their opinions and feelings about teen violence with their peers inside or outside a classroom setting.-- To portray a real, honest representation of the horrors children may face if they give in to their frustrations.
