The acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Sue Klebold, mother of one of the Columbine shooters, about living in the aftermath of Columbine.

On April 20, 1999, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold walked into Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado. Over the course of minutes, they would kill twelve students and a teacher and wound twenty-four others before taking their own lives.
 
For the last sixteen years, Sue Klebold, Dylan??s mother, has lived with the indescribable grief and shame of that day. How could her child, the promising young man she had loved and raised, be responsible for such horror? And how, as his mother, had she not known something was wrong? Were there subtle signs she had missed? What, if anything, could she have done differently?
 
These are questions that Klebold has grappled with every day since the Columbine tragedy. In A Mother??s Reckoning, she chronicles with unflinching honesty her journey as a mother trying to come to terms with the incomprehensible. In the hope that the insights and understanding she has gained may help other families recognize when a child is in distress, she tells her story in full, drawing upon her personal journals, the videos and writings that Dylan left behind, and on countless interviews with mental health experts.
 
Filled with hard-won wisdom and compassion, A Mother??s Reckoning is a powerful and haunting book that sheds light on one of the most pressing issues of our time. And with fresh wounds from the Newtown and Charleston shootings, never has the need for understanding been more urgent.
 
Includes a PDF of acknowledgments and resources from the book.

All author profits from the book will be donated to research and to charitable organizations focusing on mental health issues.

One of the saddest books I've ever read. A nightmare situation that will never be over for any of the families involved. The scariest part to me is there doesn't seem to be a way to recognize a kid in trouble or find help if you suspect trouble. ( )

A book written by one of the Columbine shooters’ mother. Not exactly the lightest of reads. But it is also a book with a message thaT begs to be told. Hence why I gave it a high rating. Indeed sometimes I skimmed pages; sometimes the truth was a lot to handle in these COVID times and I just couldn’t....but I am glad I read this book.

Those who know me know just how much of an issue mental health is for me. Sue Kleibold admits that so much needs to be done in this area.....even going so fair as to saying things should be considered “brain health”....because maybe then it will be taken seriously. Maybe crimes could be prevented.

If you expect a story of a mother excusing away her son’s guilt, this isn’t it. Sue makes it clear that she abhors her Dylan’s actions. If you also expect to hear how jacked up Dylan’s home life was.....be prepared to be surprised. Children are resilient in rough home situations. But evilness can also happen in a home where love exists and is practiced. Sue shares her guilt and confusion over that dreadful day. And yet, she also reconciles still loving her son.

I was only 9 when Columbine happened. I have lived through way more school shootings since then (I distinctly remember Sandy Hook). But the fact that these still happen shakes me to my core. No, mental health diagnoses doesn’t solve the problem....but less stigma about getting help would go a long way ( )

In this tragic memoir, Sue Klebold tells about her grief journey in the aftermath of her son shooting teens in the Columbine school shooting. It’s not an apology – and it shouldn’t be. It’s a recognition that she’s a mother too, that she lost her son, too. But when I say it like that, it makes it sound like she’s begging you to recognize that. She’s not. She’s just trying to explain that perhaps if she had been aware of suicide risks, she may have prevented her son’s involvement in the shooting, but that she (like many moms of suicidal teens) was blindsided by inexperience. This book is a plea for other moms to recognize the signs and help their kids.

You can't help but feel tremendous sympathy for Sue Klebold after reading this book about the time leading up to her son, Dylan's, actions (both murder and suicide) at Columbine High School and the aftermath. This book strikes me as a very honest rendering of her feelings all the way through - whether denial, guilt, sorrow, horror. I also can sense her personality and her obsessive thinking about what has happened to her son. Her story is one I feel is very relatable. There were signs of problems, but it was also easy to push those signs to the side. She really struggles with that dichotomy. Things she thought weren't all that important, turned out to be very telling. But only in hindsight does this become clear.

Sue does a very good job of juxtaposing her journals with those of her son. The structure of the book is excellent, and I had a very hard time putting it down. For some reason, I had trouble awarding that fifth star, not because it wasn't well done, but because it was somewhat hard for me to truly ascertain the underlying motivation for writing it. On some level, the book seems to be saying that those with mental illness are not usually violent, but in this case mental illness was an uncontrollable driving factor. Yet, I'm not sure the facts as presented necessarily lead to that conclusion.

My fear is that this book can be interpreted as rationalizing by those who choose to judge. Her conclusions seem plausible to me, but also show that when it comes to our loved ones, we will hang our love on the thinnest strand of belief in order to continue to justify our love for that person. I felt I could really relate to Sue because it is only natural to hold out hope that our children will emerge as a positive force in the world, regardless of evidence to the contrary. To drop that belief is something that no parent should be called upon to do.

Very compelling and scary read. All I can say is I sincerely wish Sue peace of mind, something that has been understandably very, very elusive for her. I think, after all she has been through, she deserves acceptance, peace and kindness if nothing else. ( )

3.5 stars. This book was absolutely heart-wrenching to read. In it, Klebold examines in some detail her life with her son Dylan before the Columbine High School massacre and also the ways in which she dealt with the tragedy. I believe Klebold deeply wants to be an influence for good in her world. The book appears to have been extremely carefully written. She seems to put great thought into what she says and how she says it. She takes such care that the book actually becomes repetitive as she is attempting to hammer home a point. I think this is an important but difficult read for parents. The fact that the audiobook was narrated by the author made it even more powerful for me. ( )

Klebold’s powerful urge to defend herself all these years was surpassed only by her desire to disappear. She felt she was “cringing like a frightened animal” in the months and years after the tragedy, suffering panic attacks so debilitating she came to understand her son’s suicidal impulses. She lost 25 pounds, numbly stumbling through radiation for breast cancer but refusing chemotherapy because she was, all agreed, too broken to survive it. Eventually, Klebold found her way forward with a mission of suicide prevention, and she provides a precise education on the subject in “A Mother’s Reckoning.” She earns our pity, our empathy and, often, our admiration; and yet the book’s ultimate purpose is to serve as a cautionary tale, not an exoneration.
