Summary "Fifteen-year-old Gregory Little is in trouble. And it has something to do with the recent massacre of sixteen students at his high school. News of the tragedy serves as open invitaiton to the media and soon the quirky backwater of Martirio is flooded with wannae CNN hacks all-too-keen to lay claim to their fifteen minutes, and lay the blame for good at Vernon's expense and as the media net tightens, Vernon finds himself drawn into a series of increasingly bizarre circumstances. Eventually, with the LSD safely diluted in the Deutschman, he succumbs to the workings of FAte and takes off for Mexico and a date - or so he hopws p with the divine Taylor Figueroa." -- back cover
