Overview

What happens when the worst 10 minutes of your life go viral and are shared with the world? The true story of a Texas newspaper columnist who investigates the shenanigans of a small-town police department — then pays a price. At a local restaurant one day, he orders his misbehaving son, 11, to walk home. When the father returns, police are waiting. The dad is arrested and charged with two felonies. The world weighs in about whether he’s a bad dad.

An entertaining and thought-provoking book that explores -- with brutal honesty -- parental responsibility, child-rearing practices and discipline, journalistic ethics, small-town corruption and retribution, and the moral consequence of being a public figure.

"As a parent, Dave Lieber made a mistake in judgment. From that experience he has created an eye-opening book. There are deep lessons to be learned here." -- Wil Haygood, prize-winning American biographer.

Editorial Reviews

Ann Ranson
“Whether you’re a parent or a child – I hope you’ll read this book. It took me on a journey, a roller-coaster ride of emotions. I laughed at the absurdity of people and systems. I cried at the raw emotion and honesty that Dave shares. And my nerves were exposed as I remembered my own moments when I missed the mark of being a Good Mom. It is an important book."
