Incredibly gut-wrenching!! I read this book at the same time I was enrolled in a legal program at our local college. Though it wasn't planned that way, it did help me understand the court system so much better. I found this book thorough and perfect in description in every detail.

I ran across this book at the library looking for something else and on a whim checked it out. While the real-life story is disturbing I thought reading about it would be beneficial.

I sincerely hope that if my kids find themselves in a situation where they need help they they ask for it before it is too late.

Really, how selfish can some people be!
I considered this a good book. It was well told. I was torn in my feelings about the whole story. I felt for the baby. I couldn't believe two eighteen year olds could be this ... stupid, for lack of a better word.
I finally felt more sympathy for Brian, the father of the baby, than with Amy, the mother. I wanted to slap Amy's Mom. I just did not like the lady. I felt it was more her fault than anyone. She needed to let her child grow up and be responsible for herself, just a little bit.
Book was well written... story is simply heartbreaking.
A great read! So very sad. The author did an outstanding job of putting forth the feelings of all involved in this tragic story.

I saw the movie before I read the book and the story is sad no matter how one hears about it.
It was an ok book, however seemed very drawn out, a bit too much for my taste.

Not the best true crime but not that bad either.
