With homicide, courtroom battles, and sensational newspaper headlines, the tale of Lizzie Borden is compulsively readable and best for the Common Core. Lizzie Borden took an awl, gave her mom 40 whacks. When she noticed what she had achieved, she gave her father forty-one. In a compelling, linear narrative, Miller takes readers alongside as she investigates a brutal crime: the August 4, 1892, murders of rich and outstanding Andrew and Abby Borden. The accused? Mild-mannered and extremely revered Lizzie Borden, daughter of Andrew and stepdaughter of Abby. Most of what’s identified about Lizzies arrest and next trial (and acquittal) comes from sensationalized newspaper experiences as Miller types reality from fiction, and as a prison struggle will get underneath manner, a gripping portrait of a lady and a the town emerges. With inserts that includes length pictures and newspaper clippingsand, sure, photographs from the homicide scenereaders will eat this nonfiction guide that reads like fiction.A School Library Journal Best Best Book of the Year"Sure to be a success with true crime lovers all over."
