UwannaPublishme Didn‘t you see me waving to you from the memoir section? 😆👋🏻 2mo
LeahBergen @UwannaPublishme Sorry, I was too caught up in the true crime section. 😆 2mo
Clwojick Slenderman CREEPS me out! You‘ll have to let me know how this books is because I love true crime, but something about Slenderman just gives me the heebie jeebies. Might have to keep it on my radar for October since there‘s always mini challenges to find a book that scares you, and not much gets under my skin. 🫣 2mo
UwannaPublishme Next time, we‘ll just have to meet in the coffee shop 🫖…or better yet…the Clearance section. 😆🛍️ 2mo
LeahBergen @Clwojick The idea of it creeps me out, too! I‘ll let you know how this one goes (when I get to it 😆). 2mo
Suet624 Did you see any fun sights??? 2mo
LeahBergen @Suet624 We didn‘t do a lot of sightseeing but I got an entire weekend with my best friend who I hadn‘t seen since Covid (she‘s in the US and I‘m in Canada). It was WONDERFUL. 🥰 2mo
Suet624 Wonderful! 2mo

This is a compelling story about mental illness and the horrible ways that we treat even children that are afflicted by it. It‘s also a story about the ongoing injustice of our judicial system that turns children into adults for political purposes and really is a barbaric situation that those who participate in can only hope that they will never face judgment.

This true crime book makes for a well-performed and engaging #audiobook. The same year as Hale‘s debut YA novel came out, three 12 year old girls walked into the woods in a Waukesha, WI park- and only two walked out. Focusing more on the perpetrators and their mental illness, Hale‘s latest book certainly will make for a discussion starter as she reveals idiosyncrasies of WI, and more details on the background of this horrible crime.

lele1432 I didn‘t realize there was a book about this! I just saw a true crime episode about it last week. 5mo
TorieStorieS @lele1432 it came out earlier this year! I saw a 20/20 episode focusing on it not that long ago as well. 5mo

A good example of careful, compassionately written true crime about a very difficult case. The writer worked hard to balance respect for what an awful thing the victim went through at the same time as writing sensitively about the perpetrators‘ mental health and problems that adults should have seen earlier. You come out of it feeling that every part of the system failed all three girls. #scarathlon2022 @Clwojick

This one won't come out until August, but I devoured it! I really think Hale did a great job of presenting everything in this case, and really focusing on how and why Morgan and Anisa did what they did, while still being respectful to the victim, Payton (at the time called Bella). What happened to Payton was awful, and it's also awful how we treat kids with mental illness, and the whole super predator bs.
