This book annoys me.Not because I don't think Scott is guilty.I do.Too much that can't be explained away says so,imo.
I'm annoyed by the fact that the sister acts like she wrote the book just out of pure and noble reasons-'' I wrote this for my boys to read someday so they know I did the moral and right thing."Sure,I'm sure you did want your boys to know all this,but you also wrote it because you had a direct connection to one of the most talked about murder cases of the last 50 years,and you knew you could and probably did make a lot of money from it.Which by itself is fine.I just can't stand when people want to cash in but act like they only have non financial reasons.At any rate,I hope she did make at least a decent amount frpm the book as her husband died of cancer about 4 years later and she had 2 young sons to raise.
I agree the bio Mom Jackie didn't come off the greatest in the book,but I've always felt bably for the woman as I think she had a rough life in a lot of ways.Her father was killed when she was a child,she got herself in situations where she had to give up 2 kids for adoption....I can't really blame her for not wanting to believe her son was guilty,no matter how obvious it was to most.People tend to blame the way his parents raised him for how Scott turned out,but I'm not sure how much blame they bear.
At any rate the book is well written for what it is.Worth a read.
Was an easy read. Interesting and definitely gave insight on what the author felt as her family secrets unfolded before here eyes.
This is a compelling, easy-to-read retelling of a tragic story.
I really enjoy ready the first few pages of this book! Anne started off telling what a good childhood she had. I'm glad she had wonderful family growning up!
If you are interested in hearing her side, then you should enjoy it. I always wondered, where Scott was staying all those times the news camera shown him leaving his and Laci's home.
I hope Anne, especially her and her husband, worked things out and stayed together, happy!!
This book was a very good read! It depicts the Scott Peterson story from his half sister's point of view. Though simply written in easy to read terms, she conveys here story in such a compelling way that you cannot put the book down until you're done with it.
