Paranoid Park is an outlaw skatepark in Portland, Oregon. Suburb kids shouldn’t go there, there are stories about the place, and they especially shouldn’t go there alone. But one night Pete does go to the park alone. What happens that night haunts him for the rest of the novel.
It was an accident. He didn’t mean to kill the security guard with his skateboard—it was self-defense. But there’s no one to back up his story. No one even knows he was at Paranoid Park. Should he confess, or can he get away with it? It’s an ethical question no one should have to answer.
Writing more intensely than ever before, Blake Nelson delivers a film noir in book form, complete with interior monologue and dark, psychological drama. This is a riveting look at one boy’s fall into a world of crime, guilt, and fear—and his desperate attempt to get out again.
