Harlan is about a suicidal, death-obsessed teenager by the name of Harlan Sexton. Turning himself into a ticking bomb, he has decided to kill himself at the end of the school year unless his closest friend, Julian, can find a way to change his mind. And that's just the beginning - the tension is amped up by the return of his abusive redneck father, a town serial killer stalking his female classmates, and an all-out violent war between Harlan and a jock bully from school. If John Hughes had directed a movie inspired by the Columbine tragedy, it would be like this book.

What did you like best about Harlan? What did you like least?
The reader was very good. The story was nice just a little too juvenile for my taste. It would be a great read for a teenager.
What was most disappointing about David Whitman’s story?
It really went nowhere. From the synopsis I thought there would be a lot of tension and conflict, but even the serial killer aspect of the plot left me flat. Really, just nothing happened. It continued exactly as it opened - the diary ramblings of a depressed angst-ridden teenage boy.
Which character – as performed by Tim Campbell – was your favorite?
Harlan. Tim Campbell has a great voice. If it were not for him I probably would have stopped listening after chapter 5.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
No. Maybe when I was 16.
