It begins with a free and joyful act--but from then on, Michael finds it impossible even to remember what it felt like to be free and joyful. When he fires his new rifle into the air on his seventeenth birthday, he never imagines that the bullet will end up killing someone. But a mile away, a man is killed by that bullet as he innocently repairs his roof. And Michael keeps desperately silent while he watches his world crumble.

The book was good. I liked it. The only thing I would like to be better is the end. I thought the author should of showed their conversation. How it played out. Otherwise I liked the book.

This book is very well written! I higly recommend this book to people if they like mystery books, especially if they lke stories that have many complications. The story is basically about a boy who turned seventeen, and the day of his party he discharged a rifle. The day he went to take his driving test, he was listening to the radio and he heard about the death of a man. The man had been shot while reparing the roof of his house. Suddenly he is in trouble, and the complications started to form, even though he had the help of his friend.

I think this is a good story, and I enjoyed it a lot. I don't really like books that have too much drama, but I definitely liked this one, even though in some parts of the book it got me mad the way Michael tried to fix his problems. I absolutely liked the story, and I hope if people read it, they would enjoy it the way I did.
