No Choirboy

By Susan Kuklin

Review by Destiny L.

This book is about boy named Roy and how he murdered his friend Kevin G.   Roy was sentenced to life in jail with no chance of parole.  The story takes place in a town called Cedar Lake and is based on a true story.  The book involved violence, murder, and death row.  I enjoyed learning about the experience of others and realized it is not the future I want for myself.  My favorite part was when Roy shared his story and stated how he felt about what he had done.  I did not relate to story or any particular character as I have not committed murder beyond the fact Roy felt sorry for what he had done.  I regret and feel sorry for some of my actions in the past.  I believe the message the author was trying to tell readers like me is to think before you do because everything has a consequence.  This book is great, thought provoking true story and I highly recommend you read it.
