Andy Jackson was the drunk driver in an accident that killed his best friend, Robert Washington. Andy's guilt is too much for him to bear and his counselors, coaches, friends and family all fail him. Told through English class assignments, including poetry; dialogues; police and newspaper reports; and letters, the story of his disintegration builds to Andy's inevitable suicide.
