      I could not pass up buying a book with this title. Thank you Bucket O'Blood!It may be one of the trashiest books I've ever read, but we're at Pitchfork this weekend and I needed something that requires little concentration and also doesn't matter if beer gets spilled on it. I feel a little self-conscious reading it in front of all the hipsters, but the good thing about being in your thirties is that you give less of a shit. I'll write more of a review when I'm done!***Done! Poor book is also don [...]

      I read this book for a criminal justice project in college on juveniles. Having grown up in saugerties, this story was a true shocker since saugerties for the most part is a quiet, small community. It was well written, appeared factual and does draw the reader into the twisted and demented thoughts of the young teenagers involved in these horrific acts.

    3. Shirley on said:

      This is the story of a young girl who thinks the only way to be happy is to kill the one person who loved her most. It is the story of youth being in a hurry to "Live their own life". Gripping yet heartbreaking as more than just the one life is lost.

    4. Jeannie on said:

      It's been some time ago that I read this book but I do remember being horrified that a child this young could be so cold-hearted as to arrange the murder of her grandmother and with no remorse. Well written and easy reading true crime.

    5. Tara Jasmine on said:

      I really liked how this true crime book was written. I find that with true crime the last half of the book can be so incredibly boring with the trail going on and on. This one however described the trial but quickly and efficiently, pointing out the key points and then moving on. This story is just so sad and I truly feel very sorry for all involved.

    6. Devlina Deyanira on said:

      First of all, this book:The sources for the author's information largely included newspaper articles and transcripts. An interview or two may also have been sources. So it does contain a lot of factual information but much of what fills the in-between are speculative at best. I think in an attempt to make it read more like a novel and less like a news article he compromised the accuracy of it. The book over-simplifies the complexity of all that was going on in the minds of these two teenagers, t [...]

    7. Eva Leger on said:

      This is definitely an interesting true crime book - if only because of the fact that two kids murdered one of their own grandmothers. There aren't many mistakes in the book that I caught so that was refreshing. I don't know what kind of allowances the author took with the conversations and the "feelings" - because of the wording in some parts I think he possibly took a little more allowance than I feel is okay - but I can't be positive. It bothered me that the author repeatedly referred to the g [...]

      If you're like me and the first thing you think about this book, is "Wow, what the heck?!" Then you're in for exactly what you would probably expect. A murder mystery. But, if you read the back of the novel & noticed the "orgy of sex and junk food" you will be surprised. Because I most definitely was. There is more sex in this book than you would imagine.The girl, Wendy, is 13 and her boyfriend, James, is 15. And they are extremely sexually active. This is the first thing that makes this boo [...]

    9. Kirsty Hopgood on said:

      "If I kill her will you love me?"What a disturbing story! Most disturbing to me is their ages, they're kids - babies! Wendy was 13.To read this book is like a smorgasboard laid out for you of how easily neglected kids can just go from bad to worse. Though Wendy's grandmother, the victim, wanted the best for her, she also in a way gave her little to live for - comparing and cursing her turning out like her prostitute mother - her old school intentions good, but not a nurturing guide for this youn [...]

      Not an easy story to evaluate and present a balanced review, due to personal circumstances and life's observations coloring my thinking. At what age should a "normal" child know right from wrong? Or an "abused" child? What is normal, and who defines it? How does one determine if the horridly devious behaviors were results of their environments or plain inherent evil, unleashed? A cross-section look at our population has revealed to me that both good and evil resides in the most "healthy," and th [...]

      True crime about Wendy, a 13 year old girl and James her 15 year old boyfriend who are accused of killing Wendy's grandmother in Saugerites, NY right after the Christmas holiday 1994. Quick and easy read. Told the background and trial with enough detail, but not too much so it read very quickly. Some true crime gets so involved in the trial and all the legality it can be confusing. Wendy's diary snipets and her dysfunctional family (Mom & Dad had their own issues) background doesn't really e [...]

      I would have to say this was well written.Even though I didn't like the way the story was portrayed doesn't mean all the much. I've read quite a few books like this. This one was just a bit different then the others I can't put my finger on it.That being said, It was about a girl (barley a teenager) pays her boyfriend to kill her grandma. Which he does. Then it goes on to describe what they did the day of and after. Come to think of it I can't remember what her sentence & punishment was. Wei [...]

      This was an alright book. I picked it up at a garage sale for 50 cents. I found myself gasping a lot as I was reading. I can not imagine doing this to my grandmother and the thought sickens me. The main question throughout the book is Why? and if I had to answer that I would say because of greed and selfishness. I am just thankful that the sister was able to get away before something bad happened to her as well. I really hope that these two are in prison for a very long time.

      For anyone who enjoys True Crime novels - this is an addiction from start to finish. Some parts made me cringe, while others made me curious and inquisitive into the minds of young adults and those in need of psychotherapy. I've always loved True Crime and Non-Fiction. I wouldn't, however, recommend this book to a first time reader of True Crime.

      #NCOwn on paperback.FS: "Another time, another place, they could have been Romeo and Juliet, two star-crossed teens bucking the gods and their families for a once-in-an-eon passion, the kind of love that stops your heart and changes your life."LS: "But I found all the candles already burning."

    16. Bree Lark on said:

      I felt like this was a guilty pleasure true crime story, if that makes any sense. I guess the crime was just so meaningless and felt like the killers were pretty trashy.Yup, this was a total guilty pleasure read.

    17. Lindsay on said:

      It's always disturbing to read how young children can adopt sociopathic tendencies. This child was only thirteen and didn't seem to care one whit about the murder.

    18. Samantha Osborne on said:

      how could a 15 year old and a 13 year old do what they did it is sick but this is a good book

    19. Jessica on said:

      I learned that even 11 year olds can be perverted and twistedeesh! What is wrong with the world??

    20. Amy Davis on said:

      I like reading about true life stories about why people do the things they do, but this book was not as good as other books I read. I don't recommend this book.

      Well written, easy read. Amazing how someone so young can be this horrific
