How long has it been on my TBR pile? Since 25 November 2011
Why do I have it? I have to say that I followed the trial up to the verdict and am curious about the aftermath and its affect on the rest of the family.
I suppose almost everyone in America knows about this case but here is a synopsis anyway: A little girl named Caylee goes missing in June 2008 and her mother inexplicably waits for about a month to report her little daughter missing. This book delves into the dynamic of the Anthony Family – especially George and his interactions with the rest of the family. It explores the beginnings of the case against Casey and although it was written before the ‘Not Guilty’ verdict, it does some investigation of the pathology of Casey Anthony as well.
I have to say that I truly believe that Casey had something to do with her daughter’s murder, whether it was accidentally or out of spite towards her parents, I just can’t decide. I suppose that we will never really know the truth of Caylee’s death but I certainly will never forget little Caylee or all the other missing children out there. I give the book an A+!
A+! – (96-100%)
