"Later that summer, when Mrs. Penmark looked back and remembered, when she was caught up in despair so deep that she knew there was no way out, no solution whatever for the circumstances that encompassed her, it seemed to her that June seventh, the day of the Fern Grammer School picnic, was the last day of her happiness, for never since then had she known content or felt peace."This paragraph opens The Bad Seed and immediately sets the tone of the novel: An unthinkable tale of deception.
