Lexile measure:
Eighteen-year-old Eric has just been released from juvenile detention for murdering his mother and stepfather.  Now he's looking for tenderness--tenderness he finds in caressing and killing beautiful girls. Fifteen-year-old Lori has run away from home again.  Emotionally naive but sexually precocious, she is also looking for tenderness--tenderness she finds in Eric.  Will Lori and Eric be each other's salvation or destruction?  Told from their alternating points of view, this harrowing thriller speeds to its fateful conclusion with an irresistible force, and a final twist that will not be easily forgotten.
