Description

Peer into the minds of teenage killers to understand the motives behind, and possibly to prevent, their horrifying violence. Luke Woodham, a pudgy 16-year-old, woke up one day, slit his mother's throat, and then drove to school, where he shot 9 people, including his girlfriend. Why? In "Inside the Mind of a Teen Killer", Chalmers, who has been interviewing teen murderers and serial killers for over a decade, recounts Woodham's gripping and horrifying story, plumbing his motives, and peering into the killer's mind. Chalmers also weaves into the narrative his research about teen culture, including comparisons with other teen killers, to analyse the disturbing ascent of youth violence and offer ways that we, as individuals, leaders, and communities, can help deal with this frightening phenomenon.
