Jeremy Krubbs’ mother is as crazy as the Red Queen.
And Jeremy’s infected with her schizophrenic genes.
He hears her voice advising him on things from the mundane to the insane.
Now “Mom” wants him to kill his highschool rival for the girl he loves.
Yes, there is one desperate hope to escape—and it’s crazier than anything else.
Ok, I guess this is a hook but it's a little sketchy.
Is schizophrenia genetic?
"desperate hope to escape" implies he knows he's unbalanced.
Most people I know who are mentally ill think they're just fine. It's one of the hardest problems to solve.
Plus this has overtones of Psycho.
Plus, I'm really down on mental illness as the motivation for violence.
