Anyone can be suffering and in need of expert care, regardless of how they act, what they say, or who they are. Those who are suffering can appear for all the world to be doing well, their private pain masked by accomplishments and triumphs.

One of the worst school shootings in U.S. history happened on April 20, 1999, when seniors Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris loaded their guns and walked into Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo., killing 12 students and a teacher.

The duo wounded 24 others and attempted to bomb the school before committing suicide.

In A Mother's Reckoning, Klebold's mother, Sue Klebold, grapples with haunting questions, wondering why her son participated in the massacre, while she recalls his normal upbringing in a loving and supportive home.

Klebold shares her theories on what may have triggered the teenagers to kill while underscoring the importance of addressing bullying and mental health issues.
