it was amazing
bookshelves: non-fiction, adults
Read in August, 2010

It's odd to say that I absolutely loved this book, but I did. It was really well researched, and Cullen did his best to avoid being exploitative--even apologizing for the poor reporting he and his colleagues did when the story first broke. He uses everything available, from police reports, to witness testimony, to journal entries from the boys to paint a true picture of what happened, where the boys were coming from, and how people in the community reacted. Super well written with a compelling narrative.

I don't read non-fiction at all, and it was recommended to me by a co-worker who is super into popular non-fiction. If more non-fiction read like this, I would be a more well rounded reader!
