Description
This tough, thought-provoking novel for young adults takes deadly aim at the oft-quoted notion: "Guns don't kill people, people kill people." With subtle mastery and precision, Paulsen's novel challenges the idea that firearms don't become instruments of destruction and murder until they are placed in human hands-- The Rifle makes it clear that guns do kill people. "For readers willing to think about this issue, for those looking for ways to introduce the debate, there is no better vehicle than this short, engagingly written story of one rifle and its fatal impact on one modern boy."-- School Library Journal
