Summary
  • Too late: Fifteen-year-old Greg is in a teen sex offenders' facility because of an assault on his stepsister. He hates the professionals who try to help him and can't wait to go home. When he enters a room for a meeting, his mother is there crying. Her partner, whom Greg calls Step Dud, sits at her side. They have come to tell Greg they don't want him back. It's too late to be good, they say. Greg comes to the crippling realization of what he has become: the father he has both hated and feared
  • Train wreck: The narrator looks back at the year she was fifteen. She is in love with a bad boy named Johnny. Johnny's friends play a cruel trick on a misfit named Susie P. by convincing her that Johnny is attracted to her. When the prank goes too far, the narrator wants something big to happen to prove Johnny still loves her. The prank goes tragically wrong when Susie is gang-raped. The narrator, now married to Johnny, reflects on the day she watched the horrific attack and did nothing
