Bully: Does Anyone Deserve to Die?

Front Cover
Harper Collins, Feb 1, 1998 - True Crime - 320 pages
Bobby Kent was a bully--a steroid-pumped 20-year-old who dominated his peers in their comfortable, middle-class Ft. Lauderdale beach community through psychological, physical and sexual abuse. But on a summer night in 1993, Bobby was lured to the edge of the Florida everglades with a promise of sex and drugs. . .and was never seen alive again. The tormentor had become the victim in a bizarre and brutal act of vengeance carried out with ruthless efficiency and cold-blooded premeditation by seven of his high school acquaintances--including his lifelong best friend--and instigated by one overweight, underloved teenager who believed her life would be perfect. . .if only Bobby Kent were dead.

BULLY is a riveting story of adolescent rage and bloody revenge--all the more harrowing and horrific because it s true.

This is a true story of a high school murder. It focuses on the bully, his girl friend and Marty. This is kind of a love triangle. It is sad but true story that really happened in a high school. Overall an interesting book Read full review

I didn't really like how the author acted like he knew exactly what was going on. He obviously never spoke with any of the people who were apart of the crime, I think he just went on what he heard. Either way, it's a good read. Read full review
