Who Killed Christopher Goodman?

Finished Who Killed Christopher Goodman? by Allan Wolf. I received a copy for review. 

This is (based on) a true story. When the author was in high school, a classmate of his was murdered. This is his attempt to come to terms with it. 

I’m not sure how much of the book is true; it probably doesn’t matter. Most people probably have a similar story about high school classmates–maybe they died in a car accident instead, but most of us know at least one person who died well before they should have. And most of us probably wonder whether we could’ve done something to prevent it. 

I imagine it’s even worse in this case, where the death was so senseless and tragic, and where the reader can see so many points where the outcome would’ve been different if just one thing had been changed. 

This story will sit with me for a while, as will its characters.
