In February of 1993, in Liverpool, England, two-year-old James Bulger was led by the hand out of a mall, and forced to walk two miles to the site of his own murder. Later, as a shocked world demanded justice, James' two killers were put to trial. They were both 10 years old.

Blake Morrison who covered the case for The New Yorker, explores its intricacies with the discernment of a journalist and the compassion of a father. He examines the ambiguous nature of his own childhood and parenthood, and poses troubling questions. How do we determine when children become adults? Who is responsible when a child commits a crime? Is evil inherent or learned? This deeply affecting, important book should be read by anyone who cares about the rights and responsibilities of children.
