Young but deadly, 3 April 2003
This book opens with the author telling of her childhood friendship with a boy who stabbed a girl. He was twelve but some of these killers are even younger than that. There are ten year old sexual assaulters and eleven year old stranglers and twelve year old torturers. By their early teens some of them have moved on to rape. The older teens often killed more people, Eg battering their parents to death then wiping out kids at their school. Although the cruelty was unsettling, I found these profiles made me think differently about why children kill.
