Berlyn was an attractive, athletic, and graceful 17-year-old. Starting in seventh grade, her father encouraged her to play basketball, believing that if she was really good at something, she would be less susceptible to people who prey on those with low self-esteem. He gave her his love of sports, coaching her basketball teams, playing with her after school and on weekends. Three times she was named most valuable player in high school, she played on several all-star teams, and she won an athletic scholarship to college. Berlyn was shot and killed on the night of her prom by a disgruntled classmate. Her father wrote a book, "A Father's Unraveling: When Tragedy Strikes, Will The Self You've Made Survive?" to help deal with the senseless loss of his daughter.
