Hey Moreta, Thanks for reading! Sorry about the bummer ending, but it's the right ending for this story. Educide is a departure from the kind of stuff I usually write. Usually, I have fun writing.

my son is about to become an highschool English teacher. this is a very sobering story. A very frightening one as we are in Texas where education funds have been slashed year after year. my youngest son left school in the ninth grade as he was targeted as a problem student and there was really no hope of him getting any help to become a successful student. he was targeted and fined for infractions such as walking on the wrong side of the hall. This story is painfully close to the truth . It breaks my heart and frightens me for our children's future.

The truth is......this is a mesmerizing book with a climax I didn't see coming. it's a truly amazing book with a interesting story lots of detailed characters. And in a typical Steve's fashion a twist that was really good. so out of ten a solid 9/½. This book would make a insanely good movie actually.

As a Canadian with a disability who attended school during the time period in which thw book takes place, I loved Educide. I was definitely one of those kids who feel through the cracks despite the occasional good intentioned teacher trying to help. I feel like Educide helped me understand ...

Great story

Different from your usual work but still great story and what a great way to stretch out of your comfort zone, loved it! And no need to apologize not all stories do not have happy endings and some people just can't understand that! keep up the good work!
