What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Written with love, anger, regret, and other profound emotions, this is a truly important book that deserves the widest readership, not only among independent readers but among students in a classroom setting, as well. Most importantly, the book will introduce Matthew Shepard to a generation too young to remember the tragic circumstances of hisdeath.

This book is beautifully written. A heartbreaking exploration of the tragedy of Matthew Shepherd's murder that will make you angry, heartbroken, and full of sorrow, yet is strangely hopeful, too. This is a book that should be read by EVERYONE. It takes less than an hour to read, but the message lives on for much longer in the hearts of everyone that picks it up.
