Richard Everett, aged 11, shoots and kills his mother with a mail-order gun. He confesses, but is not believed. Seven years later, he is still free, living in a filthy room and growing obese.

I'm really trying to get into this book..I hope it gets better but so far many pages without a direction. Chances are I'll be sending this one back without finishing it
