“It was a Tuesday in fall, a little after 3pm, and Alice was on her way to murder her friends.”
What reason could Alice Wanamaker—the kindest, most gentle girl in school—have to murder her friends? Is she crazy? Is it self-protection? Is she being blackmailed by some shady group or government agency? Have her friends been replaced by alien clones? Or is she simply trying to save them all from a fate far worse than death? Maybe there is no complicated reason for Alice Wanamaker’s heinous crimes. Maybe she’s just what everyone believes she is: a psychopath. A deranged monster.
SHINY HAPPY PEOPLE will take you on a journey you won’t soon forget, through an America somewhat different from the one you might know.
