Give A Boy A Gun

Todd Strasser 
After a huge tradegy at Middletown High School, a reporter interviews numerous students and teachers to uncover the true story behind the suicide/murder. This chilling novel really puts things in perspective. It tells the story of how two boys, Brendan Lawlor and Gary Searle, put their high school through pure terror at a dance one night after being tormented and bullied over the years. They hold all the popular kids hostage, but when Gary Searle commits suicide it distracts Brendan and he gets tackled and beaten into a coma. Throughout the book you get to know the highs and the lows of both these characters from their peers from school and bits from their suicide notes. We learn dark and disturbing  sides of both boys. This haunting novel is almost too real.
