Darn. I see this is another one I did not register here. Alas I did not write a review back then but I do recall I very much liked it and I see that on bookcrossing I gave it 8 out of 10 and I wrote : I thought it was a very good book a very interesting read"

Might re read because it has been about 10 years or more since I've read this book.

There is a list on Goodreads which I very much like which is called Kids that Kill.
My favorite subjects in the true crime genre are serial killers, moms that kill or hrt their children and kids that kill. Especially teens that kill teens so I love to have people add more books to that list so I can get recommendations.

This is the list

What is Happening to the Children?

Two teenage high school dropouts, David Anderson and Alex Bara were inseparable friends -- and outcasts in their hometown of Bellevue, Washington, an upscale suburb of Seattle. They spent the majority of their time playing fantasy games and hanging out at the local Denny's with their Goth buddies. Alex's and David's young lives were going nowhere fast -- and soon they would be convicted of a terrible crime. On January 3, 1997, they lured twenty-year-old former schoolmate Kim Wilson into a local park, where she was beaten and strangled to death. Immediately after the killing, at the victim's nearby home, her mother, father, and younger sister were brutally slaughtered.

A newspaper journalist who covered the crime, the investigation, the trial and its aftermath, Putsata Reang masterfully tells a disturbing and powerful true story of senseless multiple homicide. She illuminates some of the darkest corners where a shockingly increasing number of America's youth hides its rage, pain, and madness until it explodes in Bellevue, at Columbine . . . or anywhere across the nation.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:14:00 -0400)

A journalistic account of the actual murder investigations of David Anderson and Alex Baranyi for the 1997 killings of Bill, Rose, Kim, and Julia Wilson in Bellevue, Washington.
