This book was really good! Not one of the best I've read, but it was really good! The book is called show me the evidence because no one knows if the girl is guilty or not. She touched 3 babies.

Have you ever been babysitting, and the baby’s you are sitting die (or as you think). Well this book is about a teenager named Lauren and her friend named Janaan who is babysitting a baby, and they went to check the baby and it was dead.

I got this book signed when I met the author while at a writing conference in 6th grade. From an 11yr-old's perspective I thought it was scandalous and felt I had to get rid of it. I would have to read it again to judge it's merit from a more desensitized perspective.

I found this hard to read, being a parent of small children and thus lived with fear of SIDS until my babies were old enough, but it is well written and interesting.

I read this one in jr. high and remember loving! Suspenseful and a page-turner. Alane Ferguson came to our school and gave an assembly, I remember, so I read it after that.
