Sue Klebold was the matriarch of your average family who ate dinner together every night, watched classic movies, enjoyed baseball games, and addressed their problems head on. She could never have imagined the anguish her son Dylan was experiencing or that he would come to destroy not only his life but the lives of many others in the Columbine shooting. By no means written to excuse her son's actions, "A Mother's Reckoning" is a call to us all to recognize the ever pressing issue and symptoms of brain illness. Eye-opening, heart breaking and courageous, this is a difficult subject that should be read by all. ~ Reviewed by Jess Elder
