really liked it

This was by far the most interesting ane engaging book I have read (listened to) in quite a while. Although the book itself was fiction it was based on the Atlanta child kidnappings and murders. Children narrated the book telling about what was going on at the time,how their classmates and friends were some of the victims, and how it impacted their everyday life. Despite the subject matter the book did not contain any gore or details about what happened to the children once they were taken, except for the fact their bodies were usually found.
