    But Jazz has a secret—could he be more like his father than anyone knows? Story: 3. The book focuses more on Jazz struggling with his internal drama at the beginning, but there is plenty of plot development to keep the story moving. After Billy gets arrested, Jasper becomes a bit of a pariahwith people fearing the possibility of him following in his father's footsteps. While he tried to live a somewhat normal life he did have a best friend and a girl friendhe also carried some major baggage like tending for his ailing grandmother, missing his mother, and living down his father's reputation. When the bodies start to pile up, and it becomes clear that the town has another serial killer on its hands, Jazz realizes he has put himself and his friends in harm's way.

    What I can say is that I liked Jazz a lot and wanted to believe that he was using his knowledge of murders and murderers for the greater good, but in the back of my mind, I kept wondering if he could be a "good" guy given his background and relationship with his father. Barry lives and writes in New York City. Offing the Offspring : Duncan Hershey attempted to kill his child, along with his wifebut was stopped by Billy. I honestly couldn't put this book down and read it in just two sittings.

    Jazz is scared — of becoming a suspect, of the whispers in the back of his mind that tell him all about the killer thanks to the teachings of his father and as always, that he may become a monster himself one day. Even Evil Has Standards : Billy apparently never targeted children during his killing spree. Jazz has witnessed crime scenes the way cops wish they could--from the criminals' point of view. After Billy gets arrested, Jasper becomes a bit of a pariahwith people fearing the possibility of him following in his father's footsteps. But Lyga writes him so well, he feels really realistic. From acclaimed author Barry Lyga comes a riveting thriller about a teenager trying to control his own destiny in the face of overwhelming odds.

Ages 15 up. His first book was published in and his writing is highly regarded by critics and teens alike. Pros: Compelling lead: Let me just say, that Jazz Dent is unlike most of the book protagonists I have ever read.

Even Evil Has Standards : Billy apparently never targeted children during his killing spree. Offing the Offspring : Duncan Hershey attempted to kill his child, along with his wifebut was stopped by Billy. He achieved a level of interesting in his moral ambiguity that I usually only see in Eastern media like in the aforementioned Bastard.

I thought it was too fun and I admit that I began to judge this book by its cover or in this case, the packaging!
