A Mother’s Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy by Sue Klebold (9/52)

Imagine your child commits a crime so heinous that the world talks about it. Klebold doesn’t need to imagine as her child was one of the shooters at Columbine High School. This book explores the themes of guilt, shame and redemption after events that are beyond comprehension. Sharing moments of normalcy, despair and loss, Klebold rationalizes, yet never obfuscates. Powerful, intense and unforgettable, this book is fascinating. She also spends quite a bit of time exploring the notions of suicidality and the role that plays in Dylan’s participation. Wow. Fantastic read.
