From Publishers Weekly

The centuries-old resentments of Northern Ireland are viewed through teenage eyes in this intriguing, though ultimately limited, first novel by Belfast-born Kerr. Wil Carson is a self-described &doublequote;no-hoper&doublequote; who, by age 14, has joined a Protestant gang terrorizing Catholics in his native East Belfast. Circumstances give Wil a new chance in the form of Project Ulster, a month-long trip to Wisconsin with 10 Catholics and nine other Protestants to help them learn how to achieve reconciliation. He travels to Milwaukee, where he's placed in the care of a Presbyterian minister and his family. Wil is more interested in girls than in the project's larger aims and enjoys thrilling his American host brother, Derry, with tales of his Belfast mayhem. When Wil is rejected by Teresa, a Catholic, his learned behavior violence quickly kicks in, and he sets about sabotaging the project in ever escalating ways. Wil renders his take in a rich Northern Irish accent (&doublequote;I got a right slap around the gob&doublequote;) that gives his voice character, though he lacks the level of insight of Holden Caulfield and other coming-of-age heroes. That Wil narrates this tale from prison, serving a life sentence for murder, is meant to serve as foreshadowing but it lessens the suspense, since we know from the outset that Wil won't transcend his violent conditioning. For all its attempts to get inside Wil's mind, the narrative doesn't really explain why a 14-year-old boy would resort to a killing spree. Then again, what can? National print advertising; online marketing and publicity.

From Library Journal

Kerr's engaging debut novel paints a gritty and realistic portrait of a misguided and mistaken youth. Fourteen-year-old Wil Carson is a member of the Ulster Freedom Fighters, a Protestant terrorist organization in Northern Ireland. He is given the opportunity to spend a month in the United States on a church-sponsored peace program and reluctantly agrees, if only to indulge his love of American pop culture. His interests are typical: girls and heavy metal music but certainly not peace. A series of conflicts between the Catholic and Protestant program participants leads Wil to betrayal and murder. The story is told from the perspective of an older Wil in a Wisconsin penitentiary, who often spouts psychological theory along with amusing references to popular television characters to help explain his life. This book has biting dialog, vivid characters, and an honest rendering of time and place. However, this tragic account leaves a bitter and unsatisfying taste since the narrator never fully accepts responsibility for his actions and continues to blame society and his upbringing. Recommended for public libraries where Irish fiction is popular. Karen T. Bilton, Somerset Cty. Lib., Bridgewater, NJ
