|Summary:|| Chronicles the killing of a worker at an auto store in Pensacola, Florida, in 1991, the crime perpetrated by teenagers who had been hired for the hit. The author recounts the events of the night of the murder, the investigation, the trials and sentencing of the teens, and their subsequent lives within the Florida court and penal systems. He uses the story of the Trout Auto Parts murder and the lives of these boys to explore varying aspects of troubled adiolescence, impulsive actions lasting only moments, and the national trend of trying juveniles as adults in court. This study of adolescent crime and punishment highlights the legal and moral issues that continue to plague our juvenile justice system.
