More About This Book

Overview

Zack's dad is the district attorney, so Zack hears a lot about all kinds of terrible crimes. The latest case is about graffiti defacing the local temple, and Zack wonders why his dad is making such a big deal about it. After all, it's not like it's a murder.

But what makes this hate crime a real shocker for Zack is that he knows the guy who committed it--a fellow lacrosse player, and a good student who's never been in trouble. And it's only when Zack tries to get to the bottom of this senseless act that he fully understands the terror these vicious scrawls evoke. When a sickness that once swept the world, killing millions, rear its ugly head in a quiet community and turns friend against friend, it's a very big deal.

As the son of the state district attorney, Zack has watched his father handle a number of sensitive cases. But when his father is called upon to prosecute a teenager for vandalizing a local temple, Zack finds his life and the lives of those around him affected by the trial's controversy and upheaval.

    This is one of the worst books I have ever read. Way too much conversations. Zack's and Rachael's characters were dull no real emotions. There was nothing to really connect me to any part of the story or the characters. No action,no drama, no suspense. I do not understand how this book was rated 5 stars. This was certainly no page turner, but I managed some how to turn all 151 pages.

    Great book!

    I think that this is a great book! It really showed me how hard it must have been for those people back during that time. It showed me even what seemed to be a small crime can be such a big offense! I relly learned a lot from this book and if you choose to read it you will too.

    How true can a book get?

    I usually don't enjoy reding but, I just couldn't put this book down. This book made me feel like I was the main character, Zack, and I was involved in all the problems he was facing just based on a hate crime. Since Zack is Jewish, and the hate crime was an anti-semitic gesture towards Jews, he was very affected by it. This book isn't just fun to read, it teaches us a lesson about what hate crimes can not only do to you, but the whole community.
