Book Beginnings: Columbine

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

Columbine by Dave Cullen

"He told them he loved them."

This was the principal of Columbine High School who said it, to the students just a few days before the shooting. He was worried about kids drinking and driving or otherwise getting in trouble at prom, which was the Friday before. Dylan Klebold had a date, and Eric Harris did not.

I imagine this would be a very difficult book to read.
Here's the link to my Friday post: REMIX.

This is required summer reading for 11th grade English in our area. My daughter was really moved by this book when she read it last year. I remember when it happened. I'm not sure I'm quite tough enough for this yet.

Oh no, this does not sound like a happy book at all.
