Shayne Blank is 16 years old, very calm and very quiet when he walks into a police station and confesses to a murder. Intrigued, Detective George Rawls lets Shayne tell his story of bullying and abuse. About Mikey and his sister Marie and Marie's drug-dealing boyfriend Jon and how one of them ends up dead.
The book, told in turns by Detective Rawls, Shayne and Mikey, is both intense and funny and keeps you turning the pages until the bitter end.
