Yeah, I'm so looking forward to reading it. I also ordered the audio book (you can hear an excerpt as well on the washington post site), but it will only arrive on the 25th Sad (I'm in Germany as well)

It was revealed in that article that the first half of Sue Klebold's new book barely progresses six months from the shooting (4/20/99 - 10/20/99) - that certainly is when everything would still be so raw and fresh to her.

After the shooting, Sue said she had thought about suicide. Tom once said, “I wish he’d killed us, too,” a thought “we would have on many occasions.”

Sue was also diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001.

Confirmed: After 43 years of marriage, they divorced in 2014.

“We seemed to be on different pages,” she says. “There was nothing we had in common. Except the shared tragedy. But we didn’t feel the same way about it, we didn’t process it the same way.”

Tom and Byron “were not comfortable” about the book’s publication, she says, “but they never tried to stop me, which is amazing to me. And I love them for it.”

This is just heartbreaking:
“A Mother’s Reckoning” features searing scenes: when Sue, upon learning that Dylan was involved in the shooting, finds herself praying for his death, “the greatest mercy” she could imagine. When she and Tom and Byron reassure each other that they won’t commit suicide. When the three hold hands at the funeral home, and together they grasp Dylan’s cold fingers. (“We were finally by his side, a family again.”) When, less than two months after the shooting, the family is allowed to visit the school library, where many of the kids had died. Sue recognized her son’s lanky shape marked on the floor. “My tears splashed the floor,” she writes. “. . . I knelt beside the shape resembling my son and touched the carpet that held him when he fell.”
(from the book review)

Dylan was named after poet Dylan Thomas: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Trouble escalated during Dylan’s junior year. He was suspended for lifting locker combinations from the school’s computer system; he quit his job at a pizza place; he endured bullying. He became irritable, unmotivated. Most serious, Dylan and Eric were arrested for stealing electronic equipment from a parked van.

In his senior year, Sue writes, Dylan seemed to improve. He got a job, applied to college and was released early from the diversion program.
