In ​addition to the P-38, there are four gifts, one for each of my friends. I want to say good-bye to them properly. I want to give them each something to remember me by. To let them know I really cared about them and I'm sorry I couldn't be more than I was—that I couldn't stick around—and that what's going to happen today isn't their fault.

Today is Leonard Peacock's birthday. It is also the day he hides a gun in his backpack. Because today is the day he will kill his former best friend, and then himself, with his grandfather's P-38 pistol.

But first he must say good-bye to the four people who matter most to him: his Humphrey Bogart-obsessed next-door neighbor, Walt; his classmate Baback, a violin virtuoso; Lauren, the Christian homeschooler he has a crush on; and Herr Silverman, who teaches the high school's class on the Holocaust.

Matthew Quick: Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock

Hát ez valami szívszorítóan szép volt! Nagyon sajnáltam Leonardot, mert a magány, a szomorúság, a szeretet hiánya tette olyanná amilyen lett. Keresi a helyét a nagyvilágban, próbálja magát észrevetetni, de mintha senki sem látná vagy hallaná őt, mintha senki sem törődne vele. Közhely az, hogy a remény hal meg utoljára, de ebben az esetben, talán csak a remény tart életben.
