9780615479163: Life is Hell and Suburbia is a Lie: or the slow speed come-apart.

The kids aren't all right, and it's all our fault. At every tragedy we ask “Why?” and “How did this happen?”. Life is Hell and Suburbia is a Lie aims to help us understand what is going on in American culture, through the crumbling of the perfect world of an 18 year-old girl named Nicole O'Leary. Nicole's got great grades, is popular in school and successful in extracurricular activities. The day her parents tell her that they are separating, Nicole's life begins to unravel. She latches onto a new boyfriend, Jeremy Bloom. He's an unpopular kid, far beneath Nicole's caste. As he tries to rescue her, she begins to destroy him. She abandons the lifestyle she knew, and begins a vicious spiral that ends with revenge in the form of murder. With glaring wit and scathing truth, Ken Carter has brought to the eyes of many what should be painfully obvious: Life is Hell. Suburbia is a Lie. We are never safe from the human condition, no matter how pretty the garden and tidy the garage. Life is Hell and Suburbia is a Lie will make us examine ourselves and think about who we are, what we want to be, and what we are leaving behind.
