Simon Says: A True Story of Boys, Guns, and Murder by Kathryn Eastburn

On a frigid New Year's Eve, just twenty months after the Columbine massacre, three teenage boys carefully plotted the murder of a schoolmate and his grandparents at their mountain hideaway outside of Colorado Springs. The boys' leader, Simon Sue, was responsible for strong-arming the others into believing they were members of a secret paramilitary organization-and that their very lives depended on successfully executing the organization's “mission.” Simon Says tells the page-turning story of how these boys' lives could have gone so horribly astray, how their parents assumed all was right in their sons' lives, and what the fallout of the grisly murders was on all the families. Through painstaking research, journalist Kathryn Eastburn gets into the minds of these boys to reveal a place where the rites of passage to young manhood, to acceptance, come at an exorbitant price.
