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
I've watched countless of documentaries about this case so I knew how it would end. This book finishes before Casey goes on trail so it doesn't give any information about that. Still I wanted to read a bit about the evil person that Casey is. Who on earth is so caulise that they murder their own child? This bitch could.

Good interesting read when you like to see into people’s minds and try to workout why they commit crimes of murder.
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
I found this book fascinating but then about 3/4 of the way in I kept putting it down and took forever to finally finished. The author basically gives the ending to the mystery in the middle and then afterwards I found everything just monotonous and it just made me sick to keep reading about everything after knowing that factor in chapter 20. There ...more
But about the book, FIVE STARS. I want information, especially about the relation between Casey and her mother, Cindy. Who was Mom ...more
I’m mad that there was no justice for little Caylee and I’m mad that the killer (whoever it was) got away with it.
I cannot believe that a mother would NOT report her child missing or even make up stories that she’s with a so called nanny that doesn’t exist.
If what really happened to Caylee was an accident someone should have come forward but no one will really know the truth
Completely biased. Ignores most of the evidence. Does not touch on George and Cindy's psychological issues and lies. Does not match the facts. Fan fiction to match a biased narrate
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.
