Boy Kills Man by Matt Whyman
Boy Kills Man by Matt Wyman, 2006 Harper Teen (no longer in print)
12 year old boys are made into disposable assassins in Medellin, Colombia. It ends badly for everyone except the Ghost (drug lord). What a sad and depressing little book. I don’t see anything redeeming about it. Not recomended for school libraries.
