Mommy's Little Girl
When news broke of three-year-old Caylee Anthony’s disappearance from her home in Florida in July 2008, there was a huge outpouring of sympathy across the nation. The search for Caylee made front-page headlines. But there was one huge question mark hanging over the case: the girl’s mother.
As the investigation continued and suspicions mounted, Casey became the prime sus

I tend to go for true crime that includes the end result of the trial but I won't pass by a book that looks interesting to me because of this. Being that I followed Caylee being "missing" and her being found, I wanted to read this to not only get Fanning's take but maybe get some of the smaller details I may have missed. This doesn't disappoint in the ...more
And she has written a book about it, published some eight months before the earliest possible trial date for accused murderer Casey Anthony, the two-year-old child's mother. Mommy's Little Girl is one of the numerous carnie barkers to take aim at the infamous case out of Florida.
Summer of 2008, the United States was subj ...more
Casey Anthony is a sick, depraved, twisted and unfeeling individual. There is no grey area in that. That is the fact, clearly shown in the book, and that fact cannot be dressed up and made to look different when y ...more
The author is at a disadvantage in trying to write about the case while the story is still unfolding. If she had had the luxury of discussing the case in retrospect with its principals, she might have been able to do a more c ...more
Maybe because this is one case I read about when it was happening. Normally I read a true crime book and afterwards i will go and find more information but this time it was the other way around. Before i read this book I did hear the 911 phone call and read about the lies Casey told the police and watched on YouTube a clip where the parents of Casey were f ...more
Yet another terrible person. I have to say the mistakes in which name they used (Casey, Caylee, or Cindy) and the lack of clear separation of quotes and paragraphs make this confusing to read. The story is fascinating, but the book itself is so so.
There's not much you can say about a true crime book, it is what it is, but based on my interest in this case, I l ...more
Mommy's Little Girl
by Diane Fanning
Wow, okay so I enjoyed this novel very much because of the background details the author gave. This book was written about the Anthony family and primarily the shocking case of Caylee Anthony's kidnapping. This case made headlines all around the U.S because of the unbelievable facts in the case. This novel for the first 50 pages or so gives you a little background on Casey Anthony, her parents Cindy and George Anthony and grandmother Shirle ...more
The author did an excellent job of laying out the timeline of the known movements and statements made by Casey Anthony prior to the death of her daughter, through the month where she ...more
This book was amazing in the sense that it revealed so many insane things that were never disclosed of in the media. Casey Anthony is even more screwed up than the media even portrayed and so is her family dynamic. Sad to say if the jury would have read this book maybe Casey would be where she belongs...in jail or a mental institution and not free to make video journals to try to make money off a book deal she hopes to write at the expense of her innocent daughter beautiful, short lived life!
